Mccarthy allegory scores Winston Salem a drama written to convey a political message would not normally be accorded a place of stature in theatrical archives. Some plays produced for such purposes stand up better than others though. One of the More enduring is Arthur Millers a the Crucible a an account of the Salem witches trials in 17th Century Massachusetts. Members of the drama department at the North Carolina school of the arts is presenting a the Crucible this weekend and next at Summit school auditorium on Reynolda Road in Winston Salem. As with past presentations their production is Superb in nearly All respects. Millers play was written in 1953 at the Peak of sen. Joseph Mccarthy a popularity in the press sen. Mccarthy a Campaign to rid the government and our society of a a subversive influences was editorially denounced As a a switch what better vehicle for an allegory of the Mccarthy Era then than the most notorious True a switch Hunt on the North american continent to represent the Junior senator from Wisconsin Miller uses Deputy governor Dan Forth of Massachusetts whom history records As the actual head of the Salem tribunal. In this key role Glyn of Malley gives one of the production s Best performances. Taking some liberties with fact Miller depicts Danforth As an irredeemable hypocrite viciously prosecuting the supposed witches for some ulterior reason never made Clear. In the final scene which takes place in the Salem prison the parallel Between the Deputy governor and sen. Mccarthy is unmistakable a did you Ever see anyone with the Devil a he asks one of the characters. At that Point it is almost possible to hear Mccarthy a voice echoing a who did you know who was a member of the communist party a As Danforth of Malley conveys the proper combination of false piety and pretended outrage to illuminate the villainy the incarnate evil of the politically motivated character. He appears Only during the final two scenes of the play but his performance is nevertheless crucial. The Best performances however were delivered by two of the women in the cast. As Abigail Williams the girl who is supposed to have sex City school menus week of january 28 elementary High schoo monday monday hot dog. Chili hot dog.

She is onstage Only during two scenes like of Malley but in these Brief appearances she shows incredible dramatic Range. At the beginning of the play she is quiet and reserved or fiery and impassioned depending on who is present. In Millers re creation Abigail is a girl of 18 or 19 actually she was about to who claims to have seen demons possessing certain women in the town. Her manner is so persuasive that she induces other girls in the town to see the same purported visions. At first she is motivated by a desire to explain Why she and other girls were found dancing in the Woods a practice frowned on in Puritan areas. Later deeper motives emerge namely an adulterous affair with a Farmer in the Community when Abigail is brought out for the spectacular confrontation during the trial presided Over by Danfort she no longer appears As a beguiling Young Maiden by Puritan standards ready to dispense her charms. Rather miss Dionne is the very picture of a innocence and her fraudulent visions Are somehow made real. The other outstanding performance is by Wrenn Goodrum As Elizabeth proc a Tor. The Antithesis of Abigail she is the epitome of virtue it was her husband. John who was adulterous by involved with the scheming Young girl. John portrayed by Leslie Mcconnell is actually the protagonist in the play. It is he who tries to expose Abigail since 1897 before the court but his efforts Are in vain. He is also the one whom Danforth interrogates in the final scene during a a a confessions of trafficking with the Devil. Curiously Mcconnell a performance is the least Apt of any of the leading actors. In the beginning particularly he is most unconvincing though he seems to gain momentum toward the end and he finishes creditably. Other notables in the cast include Frederic Serino As a fraudulent exorcist the Rev. John Hale Reid As a Black slave who supposedly imported the witchcraft from her native Barbados and Lucius Houghton As the crusty Giles. Corey whose wife is executed for witchcraft because she reads books. In this production the simplicity of the sets naturally fitting for a Puritan Village Points up perhaps the greatest flaw of Millers drama. The play itself is too simple the division Between Good and evil is too clearcut. A the Crucible is of course supposed to be a morality play but there Are occasional melodramatic lapses. A the Crucible will be presented again tonight. Next week performances begin tuesday and run through saturday. Curtain time at Summit school is 8 15 . For All performances.
