Needham Community Theatre holds its final performances of The Crucible this weekend. The cast and crew include residents from Westwood and neighboring towns. 

The Crucible is inspired by the witch trials in Salem Village in 1692 and won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1953. NCT's production is directed by Marianne Phinney with a cast of experienced professional-quality actors from Needham, Westwood and surrounding towns.

Arthur Miller wrote the play during the Communist “Red Scare” of the 1950s. The play is a parable of what happens when hearsay is taken as fact and accusation presumes guilt.

Thanks to Diane Rothauser and Needham Community Theatre for sharing these photos with Westwood Minute.
