Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, Arthur Miller wrote The Crucible as an allegory in response to McCarthyism and the US government’s blacklisting of its citizens accused of being communists. Using the Salem witch trials which occurred in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692 and 1693, the play is a partially fictionalized and dramatized account of some of those events. The piece has become an American classic and a central work in the canon of American drama.
