The Neumann University Players present Arthur Miller’s classic drama The Crucible on November 7, 8, 9 and 10 in the Meagher Theatre.
This dramatization about faith, honor and community follows the conflicted John Proctor, played by Joseph Dempsey, during the Salem witch trials in the Province of Massachusetts Bay in 1692. Abigail Williams, played by Neumann senior Alisha Mulhern, leads the charge to accuse community members of witchcraft. John Proctor and others must find a way to restore their good names and faith among their neighbors.
This allegory of McCarthyism, the term coined for Senator Joseph McCarthy’s hunt for communists during the 1950s, was first performed in 1956 and has gone on to become a central work in the canon of American drama. Performed by Neumann University faculty and students, this classic work of American drama promises a night of entertainment and thought provoking ideals.
Performances run November 7, 8 and 9 at 8 p.m. and November 10 at 2 p.m. General admission is $10. Students and seniors are $5. For tickets please call 610-361-5455.
