The Crucible
    By Arthur Miller

    19:15, Wed 4th – Sat 7th February 2004 at Christ's New Court Theatre
    Lent Week 3

    The first thing people remember about 'The Crucible' is that it's about witches. The second thing is that it's a metaphor for McCarthyism in 1950s America. The third thing is that it's where they have the snooker championships. The last remembrance aside, the witch/McCarthyist aspect was what drove Miller to write in the first place. However, some years after its completion, he considered its purpose to have changed: 'It's about Proctor's guilt', he said.
