“The Crucible,” written in 1953, tells the story of a young farmer, his wife and a young servant girl who maliciously causes the wife’s arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie, and it is here the course of bigotry and deceit is depicted. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others.

Because of the mature nature of “The Crucible,” it is recommended for theatergoers age 12 and older.

Orrville Community Theater is located at 307 Hostetler Road.
