The Crucible by Arthur Miller How may I live without my name? I have given you my soul; leave me my name! - John Proctor Salem. 1692. Women are accused of witchcraft and the town has turned on itself. The surge of mass hysteria sweeps a new nation leaving it irrevocably scarred. Religious zealots, teenage girls, a farmer and his wife are among the number whose lives are forever changed by the witch trials. Written as a response to the McCarthy era and the "naming of names" and apt in today's times. The Teen Company's staging of Miller's gutting and timeless tale provides a canvas for young actors to explore detailed acting work as well as immerse themselves in the classic American drama. Please note there is one Saturday rehearsal on June 3.
