WHAT: TheCerritos College Theatre Department is pleased to start the Fall semester with The Crucible from the Arthur Miller classic novel.
This tragic drama about the Salem Witch Trials in 1692 draws a corollary to the McCarthyism of the early 1950’s and the “Red Scare” in which a private industry panel took political action and made accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence.
