In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumors of women practicing witchcraft galvanize the town’s fears and suspicions. When a young girl accuses Elizabeth Proctor of being a witch, a frenzied trial ensues. Written in 1953 and based on historical people and events, Miller’s drama provided a mirror against the hysteria of the Red Scare in Cold War America.
