UTSBackstage Presents: The Crucible

Date: July 7th – 9th

Location: Bon Marche

"I danced for the Devil; I saw him, I wrote in his book; I go back to Jesus; I kiss his Hand"


UTS Backstage presents Arthur Miller’s hauntingly familiar play; 'The Crucible.


Set in 1692 during the height of the Salem Witch Trials in Massachusetts, the play follows Abigail Williams as she incites a witch hunt for Elizabeth Proctor – the wife of her former love John Proctor.


Once caught leading a handful of girls in a local occult ceremony intending to trigger Elizabeth's demise, Abigail and the girls are brought to court to announce their guilt. To throw the court of her trial, Abigail accuses Elizabeth of Witchcraft which begins a sequence of supernatural events and Salem's demise.


Arthur Millar's The Crucible is a play not restricted by time or place but is rather a self-contained drama. Originally written to mirror Miller's perception of the anti-Communist hysteria cultivating in mid-1900s America. Today, however, it continues to tackle relevant binaries such as the Good, the Evil; Material versus Spiritual; and Sexuality versus the Repression of it.
