Knox High School to Stage Arthur Miller Tragedy


Students at Knox High School are staging a production of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” tonight and tomorrow night.

Director Terril Hahn says the play is Miller’s version of historical events, “This is his fictional account of the Salem witch trials. He made it a classic tragedy, so you have the tragic hero of John Proctor, and all of the characters are real people in history. He’s just taken the story and created a little different circumstance, so he’s got the tragic hero with the classic tragic flaw and the witch trials surrounding it.”

Performances will be held at 7:00 p.m. tonight and tomorrow night in the Knox High School Auditorium. Tickets are five dollars, and they’ll be available at the door.
