Written in the early 1950s, Arthur Miller’s play recounts the events surrounding the Salem Witch Trials. It was a time when paranoia and hysteria gripped the Puritan towns of New England, USA. Any individual whose private life didn’t conform to the established moral laws represented a threat not only to the public good but also to the rule of God and religion. Dissent was not merely unlawful, it was associated with satanic activity. People were routinely burnt to death on crosses.
