(April 12, 2010)--The UTSA Department of English Drama Through Performance Troupe will present performances of Arthur Miller's play 'The Crucible' at 7 p.m. April 15-17 and 2 p.m. April 18 in the Buena Vista Theater (1.326) at the UTSA Downtown Campus. Admission is free and open to the public.
Written in 1953, "The Crucible" is a dramatization of the Salem witchcraft trials in Province of Massachusetts Bay during 1692 and 1693. Miller wrote the play as an allegory to McCarthyism in the 1950s, when the U.S. government blacklisted accused communists. Miller himself was questioned by the House of Representatives Committee on Un-American Activities in 1956 and convicted of contempt of Congress for failing to identify others present at meetings he had attended.
The UTSA production is directed by Susan Arias, lecturer in the Department of English, and produced by Bridget Drinka, chair of the Department of English.
Cast and production members include The Thespian Club, Juan Contreras, Omar Quimbaya, Stephanie Crain, Trevor Johnican, Norma Villa, Chris Mery, Carlos Gerardo Saenz, Sarah Phillips, Sloane Hughlett, Katrice Simmons, Carolyn King, Jacob Phillip Holmes, Lacole Spraggins, Eric Repp, Matthew Underwood, Meg Edyvean, Robert Torres, Kristen DeGroot, Nirav Bhakta, Matthew Leon, Christina Coronado, Will Broderick, Jason Garza, Jason Blum, Jannette Monteith and Abigail Williams.
