The crucible by Arthur Miller( Recording )

36 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and held by 1,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arthur Miller's classic play about the with-hunts and trials in 17th century Salem is a searing portrait of a community engulfed by hysteria. In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town's most basic fears and suspicions. The ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor to testify against neighbor brilliantly illuminate the destructive power of socially-sanctioned violence. Written in 1952, The crucible famously mirrors the anti-communist hysteria that held the United States in its grip."--Leaf A. Theatre Works, Audio Theatre Collection
