For one night only, on Nov. 6 at 8 p.m., Arthur Miller’s revered drama The Crucible comes to life on the Thorneloe Theatre Stage at the top of the hill at Laurentian University.
This dramatic staged reading tells the story of the Salem witch trials that took place in Massachusetts during 1692. Miller wrote this play as an allegory for the McCarthy era when the US government blacklisted accused communists.
The Crucible is directed by Thorneloe Theatre Arts acting professor Patricia Tedford. This is the second in a series of dramatic readings by Thorneloe to raise money to replace the aging seats of the Thorneloe Theatre. Tickets are $10 each and are available at the door.
For further information, see the Facebook Event or call the Thorneloe University office at 673-1730 ext. 0.
