Theatre Siena at Siena Heights University presents Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible,” Feb. 18-20 in Francoeur Theater.
Directed by SHU Professor of Theatre/Speech Communications Mark DiPietro, Miller’s searing comment on McCarthyism tells the story of a young farmer, his wife and a young servant girl who maliciously causes the wife’s arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie – and it is here the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others. “The Crucible” is the winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play.
Curtain times are at 8 p.m. each evening. Tickets are $8 for general admission, $6 for students.
