About This Show

International City Theatre presents Arthur Miller’s timeless — and timely — tale of truth on trial, The Crucible. Shashin Desai directs.

The Crucible is a classic parable of mass hysteria that draws a chilling parallel between the Salem witch-hunt of 1692 and the McCarthyism that gripped America in the 1950s, and that remains a cautionary tale in these post-9/11 times. The story of how the small community of Salem is stirred into madness by superstition, paranoia and malice is a savage attack on the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations.
