“The Crucible” Mon Oct 5 @ 7PM

Are there modern-day witches who are executed for conducting Satanic rites? That is the question that fills the mind of anyone who watches the classic, 1996 movie, “The Crucible,” starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Winona Ryder and Paul Scofield and based upon the celebrated play by Arthur Miller. It is not only great story-telling, it also reminds us how easily fear of a suspected aggressor or insipient danger – which we see all around us today – can and does provoke mindless killings.

This fall, the Playhouse kicks off its sixth annual educational and community engagement initiative, in celebration of 100 years of Arthur Miller and the Playhouse production of his late masterpiece Broken Glass. We will present “The Crucible,” along with a talkback after the viewing, in cooperation with the Playhouse. It will be shown at 7 p.m. on Monday, October, 5 at the Lucille Lortel White Barn Center-Sheffer Studio at the Westport Country Playhouse, Post Road East, Westport.

When: 7 p.m. Monday October 5
Where: Lucille Lortel White Barn- Sheffer Studio on the grounds of the Westport Country Playhouse
Location: 25 Powers Court (close to the Saugatuck Congregational Church) Post Road East, Westport, CT.

This event is free and open to the public.
