The Crucible

In an age where one's reputation can so quickly be tarnished by a blogpost or tweet, we do well to think before we "speak". Trinity School at Greenlawn's senior class will perform "The Crucible" by Arthur Miller, which deals directly with the questions of honesty, justice and reputation. The performance will take place in the Trinity School auditorium on Friday, May 18 at 7:30. The play is based on the historical event of the Salem witch trials of 1692. Miller wrote this play in 1953 to mirror the anti-communist hysteria inspired by Senator Joseph McCarthy. Miller himself was called before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1956 and asked to name people in the theater community whom he knew were members of the communist party in America. This play is open to the public. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children, and $16 for families. For more information, please call 574-287-5590.
