Theatre: John Proctor is the Villain


Theatre: John Proctor is the Villain

This fast paced deeply insightful play follows a group of small-town Appalachian Georgia high schoolers as they grapple with big world issues of sex and power. A group of girls have started a controversial feminism club just as evidence is surfacing that one of their fathers is guilty of sexual assault. Meanwhile, their beloved hip English teacher is guiding the class through Arthur Miller’s, The Crucible , and his iconic interpretation of John Proctor as hero is brilliantly challenged by the young women. His own behavior may prove to be equally problematic. This play is disturbing, funny, timely, and ultimately a joyful celebration of courage.
