Though it refers to historical people and real events, this classic play about the witch hunts and trials in 17th century Salem, Massachusetts, is really an a-historical study of the debilitating power of community hysteria.

Written in 1953, The Crucible was Miller's attempt to caution Americans about Senator Joseph McCarthy's anti-Communist "witch-hunts" of that period in U.S. history. Americans say they treasure their freedoms; but do they really? To what extent? Another thought-provoking literary masterpiece.
