Read, in Arthur Miller’s own words, his inspiration for the play and his insistence of the truth about human behaviour and the social forces at the heart of it.

‘More than a political metaphor, more than a moral tale, The Crucible, as it developed over more than a year, became the awesome evidence of the power of the human imagination inflamed, the poetry of suggestion, and the tragedy of heroic resistance to a society possessed to the point of ruin.’
