This full-length production of American playwright Arthur Miller's 1953 play is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay colony during 1692 and 1693. Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when Republican U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy led a "witch-hunt" for alleged communists living in the U.S. during the late 1940s and 1950s. Performances at 7:30 p.m. on January 20 and 21, January 26 to 28, and February 2 to 4, with 2 p.m. matinees performances on January 22 and 29.
