This brand new school edition of Arthur Miller’s classic tragedy brings the play alive for students whether in the classroom or drama studio.

and most accessible available.
Set during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, The Crucible exposes the tensions caused by gossip and rumor within a tight-knit community, where eventually no one is safe from accusation and vengeance. Seen as a parallel to McCarthyism and the fear of communism in 1950s America, the play’s themes of truth, justice, honor, mass hysteria, and individuality still resonate with audiences around the world today.
