CHESTER SPRINGS, PA — SALT Performing Arts presents The Crucible, a 1953 play by renowned American playwright Arthur Miller. The Crucible is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692–93. With themes of paranoia, devastation, morality, and deception, The Crucible is rich in themes that are consistently relevant to human beings regardless of time period.
“Irony abounds throughout The Crucible as characters who believe they are combating the Devil’s handiwork actually perform it themselves,” says Lauren McComas, SALT President and Artistic Director. “Attempts to preserve Puritan morality by arresting and executing accused witches ironically lead to the removal of the most virtuous people from society. SALT’s version of The Crucible is a modernized reimagined version. A MUST-SEE SHOW with its so many complex themes that you can definitely understand why the Crucible is still a required high school reading!”
