Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, Arthur Miller wrote this piece as an allegory in response to McCarthyism and the US government’s blacklisting of its citizens accused of being communists.  Using the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692 and 1693, this play is partially fictionalized and dramatized account of some of those events.  This play has become an American classic and a central work in the canon of American drama.
