Lies. Betrayal. Lust. Arthur Miller’s play about 1690s Salem, is also a tale about “witch hunts” [for Communists] in 1950’s America during the Cold War. A young girl leads a Puritanical purge of witchcraft against a local farmer and his wife. As fear and excitement grow, the accusations grow more ferocious and terrifying, until no one is safe, and the truth is obscured completely. [Required for APUSH students]
