Falcon’s Eye takes on ‘The Crucible’
The Falcon’s Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College announces its fall 2013 production of Arthur Miller’s devastating parable, “The Crucible.” This is the first production in the seventh full season from The Falcon’s Eye.
“The Crucible” takes place in the scorching context of the 17th-century Salem witch trials and unravels a tale of human struggles both internal and external. Tee play explores a community galvanized by fear and suspicion, a wife betrayed by lust, an orphan girl blind with passion and obsessed with revenge, ruthless prosecutors, deluded holy men and covetous neighbors. Arthur Miller’s script pulses with the destructiveness of socially sanctioned violence, the power of hysteria and rancor, the blindness of zealots, and the heart of one tortured man trying to find his own goodness.
The Falcon’s Eye production is directed by Peter Mohrmann with Producing Artistic Director David Harris, Scenic Designer and Technical Director Ian Wallace, Costume Designer Nancy Pipkin, Lighting Designer Sam Coquerille and Sound Designer and Dramaturg Cathy Hardin. The featured cast is Alexandra Barthel, David Cameron, Cathy Hardin, Chelsea Kopp, Christine Lovette, Rachel O’Laughlin, Tom Rhatigan, Allen Schmeltz, Paul Scott, Michael Sicilia, Maggie Upton, David Williams and Tim Yancey.
“The Crucible” opens on Friday, Oct. 25, and will continue through Sunday, Nov. 10.
