Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward’s University professional theatre training program, continues its 39th anniversary season with The Crucible by Arthur Miller, running February 16 – 26, 2012. Morality and reason take a back seat to hysteria and public violence in the charged landscape of 17th century Salem, Massachusetts. Growing accusations of witchcraft place every man, woman and child in peril. When neighbor is pitted against neighbor, even reading a book may be cause for condemnation. Against this backdrop, John Proctor must wrestle his own demons, knowing that his life and the life of the woman he loves hang in the balance. The Crucible has burned into the American psyche and continues to ignite our senses today. Featuring Equity guests David Long, David Stahl, Michael Stuart and Robin Grace Thompson. Scenic Design by Christopher McCollum, Lighting Design by Kathryn Eader, Costume Design by Susan Branch-Towne, Sound Design by Buzz Moran.
