Summary

In the rigid theocracy of Salem, Massachusetts, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town. In the ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor to testify against neighbor, The Crucible mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria in the 1950s.

Food for thought

What made the experience of listening to The Crucible the most enjoyable?

A star-studded cast for a play that's become a classic in its own right. As an analysis of human nature and fanatism it remains thoroughly current.

Too fast

The actors gabbled so fast that I had trouble discerning one whispering voice from another, and don't listen to this as you fall asleep because you end up straining to find out what is being said in between screams and barking dogs! A real shame.

Abridged Version

What made the experience of listening to The Crucible (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

As an English teacher I enjoy listening to well performed plays...and so do my students. The actors perform admirably.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Crucible (Dramatized)?

Stacy Keach is magnificent as John Proctor. "My Name man, my name."

Any additional comments?

I wish there was a notation that this is an abridged version of the play.

It is abridged.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I bought the book to read along with the book and it does not follow the book. Extra lines are added and some are out of order. It is a good performance, but I wanted it to be the book.
