The Tabor College theater department will present “The Crucible” under the direction of Judy Harder. It will be presented in the Tabor College Lab Theater located in the basement of the Lorenz building April 11 to 13.
Arthur Miller’s acclaimed “The Crucible” is the story of ordinary people caught up in a universal tragedy. Set in the context of the 17th century, the play follows the witch trials of Salem, Massachusetts, a town torn apart by fear, vengeance, and hysteria. In the midst of the chaos, John Proctor, a common farmer, faces his flaws and failures and struggles toward personal integrity.
On one level, “The Crucible” is about politics and the way history repeats itself. On another, it is the journey of a husband and wife dealing with betrayal and brokenness in their community as well as within themselves. It is a story of a search for truth, goodness and redemption.
