In a small Puritan settlement in Massachusetts, in the late 17th century, deeply rooted secrets, resentments, and lies have begun to surface in a world dominated by religious extremism. Neighbor turns against neighbor as the paranoia, mass hysteria, and power politics of the Salem witch trials – fuelled by the reckless accusations of young women, and lead by men hungry for power, prestige and land - overcome an entire community. This allegory of the Communist “witch hunt” of the 1950s McCarthy-era won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1953, and has fascinated and electrified audiences for decades. This ambitious production features a large, all-student cast and is directed by Professor Anna Budd, with lighting, sound and set design by resident designer Mike Walsh.
