Tues 1 May, Stamford Theatre talks
BY ARTHUR MILLER
Miller’s best known play is, ostensibly, about the witch hunts in Salem and the play in which he explores most thoroughly the nature of courage in the face of terrible fear. Miller’s directly linking the prosecution of the innocent...2 centuries before...with the hysteria of the contemporary McCarthy trials made for powerful reactions across America. This is his play about the dignity of the private man and his need for honour at all costs.
