    McNeese Theatre Presents The Crucible | McNeese State University

    Opening Release of the Audio/Video (slideshow): October 30, 2020 @ 7pm on YouTube via https://www.smuhsd.org/millshigh

    The Crucible is one of America's most chilling plays. Written in 1953, Arthur Miller's classic is a retelling of the Salem Witch trials of 1692-1692 in which nineteen people were hanged for witchcraft. Miller's play resonated with many accused of Communist activity during the 1950's, including Miller himself.
     
    Synopsis: In the tight-knit, Puritan town of Salem, a group of girls are discovered dancing in the woods and then immediately fall ill. When no earthly cause can be identified, fear and suspicion begin to percolate in the small, isolated community, that something larger, more fearsome, and other worldly may be to blame. Buried secrets and resentments are brought to light, and attempts to root out evil lead to finger-pointing, treachery, and betrayal. When everyone is a suspect, sometimes the most dangerous threat to the community may be the community itself.  
     
    This play will be performed and recorded via Zoom, with the audio enhanced with complete sound design, immersing the listener into this world. The audio production will be shared to the public, completed with slideshow images, on Friday, October 30th starting at 7pm on Youtube.
