FPAC presents Arthur Miller’s The Crucible - Apr 28, 29, 30

Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) presents Arthur Miller’s landmark play, The Crucible, on Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m., with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. on April 30. The production will be staged at THE BLACK BOX, the company’s home and performance venue located at 15 West Central Street in downtown Franklin.

Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, the classic American drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. Set in 1692, the story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife’s arrest for witchcraft. 

The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie, and it is there that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others.

While set against the backdrop of the Salem Witch Trials, Miller’s masterful drama is an allegory of the McCarthy-era witch-hunts of the 1950s. The Crucible is a timeless work with a universal message about the power of false accusations, mass hysteria, fear, and intolerance.

FPAC presents The Crucible as part of the company’s 26th season. The production is sponsored by NETA Cares. Tickets are $24, with general admission seating. For tickets and more information, visit or call (508) 528-3370.

"Catie Curtis displayed a gift for making simple kindness seem edgy and chic, her gorgeous falsetto leaps embellishing the simplicity of her vocals." – Scott Alarik
