Few serious American playwrights have captured the imagination of the theater public all over the world as has Arthur Miller with DEATH OF A SALESMAN and THE CRUCIBLE. Mr. Miller's plays are rooted in a realistically critical view of American life and propelled by the intense personal conviction of a man who cares what he writes about and writes about something that matters. In THE CRUCIBLE he turns for his setting to the grim days of the Salem witch trials, and brings into urgently brilliant focus on an issue that still weighs heavily the progress of American civilization--the problem of guilt by association.

Work Description

The Crucible is a 1953 play by American playwright Arthur Miller. It is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692–93. Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists.
