The Marshall Theatre Alliance will present Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" beginning this evening, Oct. 10, and continuing nightly through Saturday evening, Oct. 13. Each night's performance begins at 8 p.m.
Miller’s parable of mass hysteria draws a chilling parallel between the Salem
witch hunt of 1692 and the McCarthyism that gripped America in the 1950s. The
story of how the small community of Salem is stirred into madness by
superstition, paranoia and malice is a savage attack on the evils of mindless
persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations.
