SCOTTVILLE — Mason County Central Drama Department is tackling a play that addresses two topics that are stains on the history of our civilization. Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible”, written in 1953, was set in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692 and was about a community of young girls accused of witchcraft. However, Miller saw the play as symbolizing the hunt for American communists in the 1950s led by Sen. Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin.

Director Tom Richert said he selected the play because it coincides with the book by the same name that students have to read in an advanced English class. “Plus, these are real people and real events,” Richert said. “I believe that adds another element to this play that is unlike other plays that we have done.”

The production opens this Friday, Nov. 13 and will continue on Nov. 14, 20, and 21 at A.O. Carlson Gymnasium.  Show times are at 7:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at the door for $5 for students and seniors and $6 for adults.
