The Crucible, Capilano University, until Feb. 18

Take a look at if you want a deal on the tickets, because sometimes half-price tickets are available.

In 1692, Salem, Massachusetts was an enclave of rigid piety huddled on the edge of a wilderness. Its inhabitants believed unquestioningly in their own sanctity. But in Arthur Miller’s edgy masterpiece, that very belief has poisonous consequences when a vengeful teenager accuses a rival of witchcraft. Those accusations multiply to consume the entire village. The Crucible brilliantly explores the threshold between individual guilt and mass hysteria, personal spiteand collective evil. It is relentlessly suspenseful, vastly moving and compels the audience to search their hearts and consciences in ways that only great theatre can.
