The Patriot Players at Liberty High School will present the classic drama based on events from the Salem With Trials of 1692 this November.

Arthur Miller wrote “The Crucible” in 1953 as an allegory to the McCarthy-era witch hunt for communists in America.

The play is one of the most widely-studied and performed works in American theater, and is read in all junior English classes in Issaquah, said drama teacher Katherine Klekas.

“This play is super-intense,” said Liberty junior Hannah Grandine, who plays one of the girls who accuses others of witchcraft. “There’s no way to avoid being sucked in.”

The performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12-13 and 18-19, as well as 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Nov. 20 at Liberty High School Auditorium, 16655 S.E. 136th St., Rention, WA 98059. For more information call Klekas at 425-837-4855.
