'The Crucible' is a play written by Arthur Miller. The Crucible is set against the backdrop of the mad witch hunts of the Salem witch trials in the late 17th century. It is about a town, after accusations from a few girls, which begins a mad hunt for witches that did not exist. Many townspeople were hanged on charges of witchcraft. Miller brings out the absurdity of the incident with the theme of truth and righteousness. The theme is conveyed through the struggles of Miller’s main character, John Proctor.

In 1953, Arthur Miller's play "The Crucible" ran on Broadway at the Martin Beck. Despite being a box office success and acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, it was considered second-best to his prior "Death of a Salesman."

The original cast included Arthur Kennedy, E.G. Marshall, and Beatrice Straight, and Madaleine Sherwood

The Play was then adapted for the screen and starred Arthur Miller's son-in-law, Daniel Day-Lewis.
