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.

Not the Complete Play

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This performance is abridged. The description says it's narrated by Stacy Keach, but I'm 20 minutes into the performance and all the narrative passages are missing, as well as some of the dialogue.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I got this recording so I could listen to actors perform while I read, since I find it difficult to experience a play by reading it. The only redeeming quality is that the performance is quite good and, of course, the story is excellent.

Any additional comments?

I guess I should have read some reviews before making this purchase. Disappointed I wasted a credit on it.
