The Crucible

The Coastal Carolina University Department of Theatre presents Arthur Miller’s classic drama The Crucible, under the direction of John Woodson, teaching associate. This student-led performance will transport the audience to the Puritan world of 1692 Massachusetts, where Abigail Williams and her cohort of girlfriends lead a Puritanical assault against a local farmer and his wife. Deep-seated jealousy and seething resentments pit neighbor against neighbor as a community is thrown into turmoil while accusations of witchcraft stain the people in paranoia. Performances are Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 9 at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Nov. 10 at 3 p.m., and Nov. 13-16 at 7:30 p.m., in the Edwards Theatre on the CCU campus in Conway.
