The Crucible comes carefully crafted at Threshold Repertory Theatre

Threshold Repertory Theatre’s adaptation of Arthur Miller’s most well known play, The Crucible, is stellar, to say the least. In the company’s inaugural performance at their new Society Street location, Miller’s scathing social commentary of 1950s McCarthyism is effortlessly brought to life through complex emotional performances by the 19-person ensemble.

Set in Massachusetts at the height of the Salem Witch Trials, The Crucible focuses on the effects of fear and paranoia on a society, and the subsequent destruction wrought by such psychological imbalances. But don’t worry; it’s not all seriousness. In the midst of flying accusations are moments of subtle comedic relief that are sure to place a smile on your face.

This is a carefully staged, thought-provoking performance that you don’t want to miss.

The show runs through November 13. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $10 for students. Call 704-996-7037 or visit www.thresholdrep.org for more information.

    I Agree ! this cast is fantastic. I am from New Jersey and wife and I used go to the Broadway Theater as many time as possible . I will tell you that no cast has ever been better then this one. This is a professional show in Charleston. It is Broadway show acted intimately in a brand new Black Box Theater. My daughter has been a professional since she was 12 and has won many awards, But we will tell you the cast is so good that there are 19 award winning actors and actresses in this play. My wife and I could not have enjoyed it more. My Daughter Erin plays Elizabeth Procter.
