In the rigid theocracy of Salem, Massachusetts, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town. In a searing portrait of a community engulfed by panic―with ruthless prosecutors, and neighbors eager to testify against neighbor―The Crucible famously mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria that held the United States in its grip in the 1950s. Arthur Miller's Tony Award Winner for Best Play. A BBC and KCRW co-production.
Recorded before a live audience at The Culver Stage, Culver City in March of 1994.
