This play takes place in Salem, Massachusetts, during the 1692 Salem witch trials. Based in historical fact, it looks at what happens when a town gives in to hysteria and paranoia.

Arthur Miller wrote this play in the 1950s during the height of the “Red Scare.”  Students will study the connection and the implications that the author might have been trying to put across in his work.
