In the God-fearing town of Salem, a terrifying frenzy of paranoia, suspicion, and revenge emerges when a group of girls make accusations of witchcraft. 

Director Stephen Dennis offers a new take on Miller’s masterpiece, creating a world borrowing from the past, present, and future—one that re-imagines the world of the play, while paying homage to the tradition in which it was written.
