The Norfolk Senior High School’s Theatre Department will be presenting Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, May 7 – 9, 7:00 p.m in the Johnny Carson Theater at Norfolk High School.

The Crucible is a drama that is fictionally inspired by the Salem Witch Trials that took place in the late 1600s. The play itself is an allegory of the Communist Red Scare (McCarthyism) that took place in America around the time this play was written (1950-1956).

The Salem Witch trials were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts between February 1692 and May 1693.

The two lead characters are John Proctor and Abigail Williams played by Collin Wood and Elley Coffin. Abigail Williams is the leader of those who have been making these false accusations. She also knows what she wants and will do anything to get her way, even resort to murder to get it. John is an honest, upright man with a terrible secret. According to Collin Wood, ¨He (John) tries to be a good person that does the right thing even when others make it very hard for him.¨

Tickets are $5 for students and $7 for adults.
