A group of teenage girls is discovered dancing undressed in the woods. When they fall ill and no earthly cause can be identified, is something larger to blame? UK-based Director Michael Burditt Norton (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) brings Arther Miller’s The Crucible to life in a compelling, iconoclastic and irreverent spin on this central work in the American canon. Norton’s The Crucible, featuring a lean ensemble playing all 22 characters, is a gutsy examination of history and current events, showing what happens when you mess with the fierce, hormonal power of young female outrage.
The Crucible is 3 hours with intermission.
Recommended for ages 13 and up. Includes sexual content, violence, loud noises and bright flashes of light.
