Hamilton Murray Theater in Murray Dodge Hall
Princeton Summer Theater presents one of the foremost classics of American theatre, Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, which uses the proceedings of the Salem witch trials to examine the manic effects of mass hysteria in society. As an increasing number of upstanding townspeople are accused of witchcraft, Miller emphasizes the contagious nature of fear and the elusiveness of truth. The 1953 Tony Award-winning play invites us to question the importance of upholding morality in times of hardship. Directed by Nico Krell.
