“The Crucible” takes place in the scorching context of the 17th-century Salem witch trials and unravels a tale of human struggles both internal and external.
The play is about a community galvanized by fear and suspicion, a wife betrayed by lust, an orphan girl blind with passion and obsessed with revenge, ruthless prosecutors, deluded holy men and covetous neighbors.
Arthur Miller’s script pulses with the destructiveness of socially sanctioned violence, the power of hysteria and rancor, the blindness of zealots and the heart of one tortured man trying to find his own goodness.
“The Crucible” is produced by The Falcon’s Eye and directed by Peter Mohrmann. The producing artistic director is David Harris, scenic designer and technical director is Ian Wallace, costume designer is Nancy Pipkin, lighting designer is Sam Coquerille and the sound designer and dramaturg is Cathy Hardin.
The featured cast includes: Alexandra Barthel, David Cameron, Cathy Hardin, Chelsea Kopp, Christine Lovette, Rachel O’Laughlin, Tom Rhatigan, Allen Schmeltz, Paul Scott, Michael Sicilia, Maggie Upton, David Williams and Tim Yancey.
