Description

After married man John Proctor decides to break off his affair with his young lover, Abigail Williams, she leads other local girls in an occult rite to wish death upon his wife, Elizabeth. When the ritual is discovered, the girls are brought to trial. Accusations fly and a literal witch hunt gets underway. Before long, Elizabeth is suspected of witchcraft, and John's attempt to defend her only makes matters worse. Written during the height of McCarthyism, this story is unfortunately as relevant today as it was in both 1692 and the 1950s. Will John survive his crucible?
