WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Schoolhouse Theater and Mare Nostrum Elements presents a rare Off-Broadway revival of Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Arthur Miller's The Crucible at The Arclight Theatre. This acclaimed regional production arrives in NYC from Croton Falls, New York where it was hailed by Westchester's Journal News as "an edge-of-the-seat evening of theater... ingenious staging turns even off-stage moments into a revelation." The Crucible, a historical play based on events of the 1692 Salem witchcraft trials, is a powerful and timeless depiction of how intolerance and mass hysteria can tear a community apart. The story centers on a farmer, John Proctor, whose wife Elizabeth is accused of witchcraft by Abigail Williams, a former servant of the Proctors. In the wake of Abigail's charges, Reverend Parris begins hearing accusations and counter-accusations from all sides of the community, so he brings in another minister to determine who is guilty. A powerful parable about McCarthyism, the themes of religious persecution and the need for personal strength resonate to the present. Group Sales Number: 917-806-0082 Minimum Group Size: 10
