Running Time: Approx 2 hours and 45 minutes with one intermission

Arthur Miller’s powerful and classic play about the Salem witch trials. Religion, conspiracy, witchcraft, and lust fuel this passionate play about shame and morality as paranoia becomes strong enough to poison a whole town. This stirring story of the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. A contemporary reimagining of this revolutionary play brought to life by Seattle’s finest actors.

1953 Tony Award Winner for Outstanding Play
