The Crucible Opens Tonight

In the Puritan New England town of Salem, Massachusetts, a group of girls goes dancing in the forest with a black slave named Tituba. While dancing, they are caught by the local minister. One of the girls falls into a coma-like state. Rumors of witchcraft fill the town. Sending for an expert on witchcraft, the girls’ ringleader is questioned about the events that took place in the forest. She admits to doing nothing beyond “dancing.”

Later, Tituba confesses to communing with the devil, and she hysterically accuses various townsfolk of consorting with the devil. Suddenly, some of the girls join her,confessing to having seen the devil conspiring and cavorting with other townspeople.

The summer passes and autumn arrives. The witch trials have caused unrest in neighboring towns. The accused witches are begged to confess falsely in order to save their lives, but they refuse. Despite desperate pleas, a local farmer goes to the gallows with the others, and the witch trials reach their awful conclusion.
