WITCH HUNT: Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" was made for times like these.

Hysteria grips a 17th century Massachusetts village. As the Salem witch trials begin, a group of young women face preposterous and perilous charges of communing with Satan, and the bonds between families and friends are tested. This 1953 Tony Award-winning drama by Arthur Miller originally found parallels in the political scare-tactics of Sen. Joseph McCarthy. However, as anyone who has paid attention to the news of late will know, the play is ripe for modern interpretation. Award-winning Bay Area director Jeffrey Lo returns to Los Altos Stage Company to helm this American theater classic.
