The Crucible is a 1953 play by the American playwright Arthur Miller.  It is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Province of Massachusetts Bay during 1692 and 1693.  Miller wrote the play as an allegory of McCarthyism, when the U.S. government blacklisted accused communists.  Miller himself was questioned by the House of Representatives' Committee on Un-American Activities in 1956 and convicted of "contempt of Congress" for refusing to identify others present at meetings he had attended.

As a special benefit to attending the April 1st performance, we will be hosting a Q&A with the Cast of the The Crucible after the performance.  This opportunity to learn more about the show and characters from the performers that brought them to life is included with the price of admission on Wednesday, April 1st.

In 1953, the same year the play had its debut, Miller wrote, "The Crucible is taken from history. No character is in the play who did not take a similar role in Salem, 1692."  Many of Miller's characters were based on people who had little in the public record other than their statements from the trials, but others survived to expand, recant, or comment on the role they played at Salem, including jury members, accusers, confessors, and judges.

In the war between the sexes, there always comes a time for unconditional surrender.

The Taming of the Shrew is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1590 and 1592.  The play begins with an induction in which a mischievous nobleman tricks a drunken tinker named Christopher Sly into believing he is actually a nobleman himself.  The nobleman then has the play performed for Sly's diversion.
