The Crucible.  In a small American town, a group of young girls are found dancing in the woods, and mysteriously fall ill. When no earthly cause can be determined, the citizens suspect that a more sinister force may be at hand.

Arthur Miller’s remarkable 1953 play, remains as relevant as ever and carries with it a stern warning about what happens when we lose our humanity and sell our souls to save ourselves. The Crucible plays through May 18 on select days.  Visit Brüka.org for more details and advance ticket sales.
