Mystic Theatre performs a scene of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible.” Accusations of witchcraft fly, while the townspeople stand in awe of the unfolding events.

Miller’s masterpiece is set among the Puritan Colony where religious diversity was not tolerated and any accusation could condemn you for a lifetime. The play brought the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 to Broadway in 1952, commenting on Senator Joseph McCarthy’s witch hunt of communists and on larger themes of betrayal, paranoia and persecution.

The performances are in the Sadler Center Commonwealth starting Sunday at 6:30 p.m. and Oct. 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5.
