‘Crucible’ comes to Zionsville’s OMSP

Zionsville — Bigotry and deceit come to life on the stage in March when Zionsville’s Off-Main Street Players presents Arthur Miller’s 1953 Tony Award-winning play, “The Crucible.”

Set in 1690s Salem, Mass., when fears of witchcraft ran rampant, the story centers on farmer John Proctor, whose wife, Elizabeth, is accused of being a witch by their servant girl, Abigail Williams. The farmer intends to prove in court that the girl lied. But instead of saving his wife, Proctor finds himself facing the same charge amid the paranoia and hysteria that have gripped the village.

Miller wrote the play as an allegory to McCarthyism, the then-current hunt for Communists in America during which false or spurious allegations destroyed countless reputations.

The play runs 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, March 8, 9, 15 and 16, with a Sunday matinee at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 10, at the Zionsville Town Hall, 1100 W. Oak St., Zionsville. Tickets are $12. Reservations can be made at www.offmainstreetplayers.com or by calling  595-3700.
