The Crucible

NYC 2019 | Boston 2019

Written by Arthur Miller
Directed by Eric Tucker

The Crucible is a 1953 play by American playwright Arthur Miller. It is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692–93. Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists. Miller 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.

The Crucible ran approximately 3 hours, including a 15-minute intermission.

A planned March 27th – April 26th 2020 remount of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible at The Connelly Theater was canceled due to COVID-19 .

Praise for NYTimes CRITIC'S PICK The Crucible

Spirited and spellbinding! It would be odd to say that such a play could be fun, but this production is lively and enchanting, with a devilish spark of something like magic.”

Fit for Our Times… Forceful, fast-moving.”

★★★★  The Crucible Boils Over Again in a Hot and Timely Staging! … Bedlam delivers a blazing performance in dark, relatively intimate, 99-seat circumstances.”

Tucker’s staging supercharges an already electric script.”

Zachary Stewart, Theater Mania

There are strong forces at work in this Crucible.”

★★★★ Bedlam’s characteristically smart, stripped-down production pulses with an electric current and lays bare the play’s bitter truths. It is as gripping and revelatory a Miller production as New York has seen in years, and a bracing reminder of what a real witch hunt looks like.

A MASTERFUL ‘Crucible’.”

Bedlam Offers a Visceral Take on Arthur Miller’s Witch-Hunting Classic”
