The Crucible: A Play in Four Acts

Miller, Arthur Author

9780141182551: The Crucible: A Play in Four Acts

Arthur Miller's classic parable of mass hysteria draws a chilling parallel between the Salem witch-hunt of 1692 - one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history - and the McCarthyism which gripped America in the 1950s. The story of how the small community of Salem is stirred into madness by superstition, paranoia and malice, culminating in a violent climax, is a savage attack on the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations.

About the Author:

Arthur Miller was born in New York City in 1915 and studied at the University of Michigan. His plays include All My Sons (1947), Death of a Salesman (1949), The Crucible (1953), A View from the Bridge and A Memory of Two Mondays (1955), After the Fall (1963), Incident at Vichy (1964), The Price (1968), The Creation of the World and Other Business (1972) and The American Clock. He has also written two novels, Focus (1945), and The Misfits, which was filmed in 1960, and the text for In Russia (1969), Chinese Encounters (1979), and In the Country (1977), three books of photographs by his wife, Inge Morath. His most recent works include a memoir, Timebends (1987), and the plays The Ride Down Mt. Morgan (1991), The Last Yankee (1993), Broken Glass (1993), which won the Olivier Award for Best Play of the London Season, and Mr. Peter's Connections (1998). He has twice won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and in 1949 he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

From AudioFile:

This excellent recording reissues the 1972 performance featuring Robert Foxworth as John Proctor and Pamela Payton-Wright as Abigail Williams. Miller's play about witch hunts in Salem, Massachusetts, explores empty piety, the nature of guilt and mass hysteria. Every scene works well in this dramaticÐeven emotionally wrenchingÐrecording. Foxworth's voice conveys Proctor's mixed shame and dignity well. As Abby, Payton-Wright feigns innocence, flaunts self-pride, threatens and cajoles. Opinions vary as to whether Miller's play leans more closely to melodrama or to tragedy, but, in either case, it's served well by this fine performance. Fans of drama on audio will eagerly await further titles from Caedmon's archive. G.H. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
