The Crucible is set in the tight-knit, Puritan town of Salem. The plot is described as follows: "When a group of girls are discovered dancing in the woods and then immediately fall ill and no earthly cause can be identified, fear and suspicion begin to percolate in the small, isolated community, that something larger...may be to blame."
