Filippo Dini takes on one of the most clear-sighted and fierce pieces of American playwriting. Miller wrote The Crucible in 1953, during the height of McCarthyism. Amidst an atmosphere of persecution and social hysteria, he produced a dramatic portrayal that revisited what happened during the 17th-century witch hunts in Salem. That highly controversial period in Western history became a ruthless mirror of the darkest and most sinister spectres that at times succeed in overwhelming our very souls. Performing alongside Dini are, among others, Pierluigi Corallo, Gennaro Di Biase, Andrea Di Casa, Manuela Mandracchia, Nicola Pannelli, and Fulvio Pepe.
