ROBBINSVILLE, NJ– Walk down a dark, winding path with the Robbinsville High School Raven Players’ production of The Crucible by Arthur Miller. Witness the town of Salem, Massachusetts as it is thrown into a state of paranoia. Anyone can be a witch, and no one can be trusted.
The Crucible weaves the sobering tale of the mass hysteria caused by the Salem Witch Trials. Abigail, a young girl living with her uncle, Reveren Parris, has been having a torrid love affair with her employer, John Proctor, a married man. When John, overcome with guilt, confesses this to his wife Elizabeth, Abigail is fired at once. When Abigail commits a terrible sin, she will tell one, inconsequential lie to protect herself and others. As rumors begin to spread like wildfire and the town is plunged into a state of madness, Abigail’s small lie quickly spirals out of control. The Crucible, informed by historical events, exemplifies how quickly one white lie can turn against you, portraying a solemn, timeless tale that still rings true today.
Come see the dark tale of The Crucible by Arthu Miller in the Robbinsville High School auditorium(155 Robbinsville-Edinburg road, Robbinsville, NJ) on November 21, 22, and 23rd at 7:00 PM. Tickets can be purchased for $10 in advance at http://www.rp.booktix.com , or at the door.
