Arthur Miller's THE CRUCIBLE
Date: Saturday, June 17th, 2006 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Speaker: Nagoya Players
Nagoya Players presents Arthur Miller's The Crucible directed by Patti Gage, stage manager Hitomi Takeda Saturday June 17 at 14:00 and 19:00, Sunday June 18 at 14:00 and 18:00. The Nagoya Players, an English-language community theater group, begins its 2006 season by presenting Arthur Miller's chilling and cautionary tragedy The Crucible. The play features a 17 member international cast including Elijah Bonarrigo, Irene Dewald, Andrea Penny, and Andrew Tedman. Set in 1692 Salem Massachusetts, The Crucible is a devastating portrait of a town gripped by fear, suspicion, and mass hysteria. The faith of Puritan New Englanders that God would be with them and protect them was the very foundation of their society. That foundation starts to crumble in Salem when a group of young girls begins to accuse members of the community of breaking that bond with God and practicing witchcraft. The Devil strikes first in the most unlikely place. In the struggle to find the Devil and root him out, neighbor turns on neighbor. Petty jealousies and squabbles turn deadly as the community descends into a destructive mania of suspicion and mass delusion. Arthur Miller used Salem as a metaphor to show that the spirit of persecution and hysteria was still alive in Senator Joseph McCarthy 's Committee on Un-American Activities. America in the 1950 's, as well as presently with the War on Terror, draws stark similarities to colonial Salem. They are both places in time when fear, suspicion, and mass hysteria drowned out "the better angels of our nature."
