WILLIAMSTOWN -- Williamstheatre proudly presents a fresh prospective on Arthur Miller’s classic "The Crucible," directed by Omar Sangare. Once emblematic of political persecution of suspected communists during the Cold War, The Crucible is an allegory that resonates wherever sanctimony is used as a weapon of oppression and intolerance.
In this canonical American drama set during the 17th-century Salem witch trials, Arthur Miller explores human cruelty and the corruption that afflicts a paranoid community looking for scapegoats. This radical re-imagining of "The Crucible" is a portrait of a diseased society, a suspense story of adultery and brutality in a fundamentalist town. It is a parable of people in crisis who can’t distinguish slander from gospel, torn between allegiances to their families, to their community, to God, and to their good name.
The performances are March 7 to 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the ‘62 Center’s Adams Memorial Theatre, 1000 Main Street.
Tickets are Free.
For tickets, visit the Williams ‘62 Center Box Office Tuesday through Saturday, from 1 to 5 p.m. or call 413-597-2425. For more info: 62center. williams.edu.
