The Crucible by Arthur Miller
TampaRep is once again partnering with ThinkTank Theatre to present THE CRUCIBLE, by Arthur Miller, a powerful play that explores the dangers of religious extremism, mass hysteria, and the scapegoating of innocent people. Set in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, the play tells the story of a group of young girls who begin to exhibit strange behavior, claiming to be possessed by the devil. As the hysteria spreads, innocent people are accused of witchcraft and put to death. The Crucible is a thrilling and still unfortunately relevant reminder of the importance of critical thinking and the dangers of blindly following authority.
