Presents Season 2014 - 15
Salem, Massachusetts—1692. Rigid piety huddles on the edge of the new world’s wilderness.
Its inhabitants believe unquestioningly in their own sanctity, but in Arthur Miller’s edgy masterpiece, that very belief will have poisonous consequences when a vengeful teenager accuses a rival of witchcraft—and then those accusations multiply to consume the entire village.
First produced in 1953, at a time when America was convulsed by a new epidemic of witchhunting, The Crucible brilliantly explores the threshold between individual guilt and mass hysteria, personal spite and collective evil…and speaks as clearly to us today as it did during McCarthy’s Red Scare.
The Crucible is a play that is not only relentlessly suspenseful and vastly moving, but one that compels us all to question our hearts and consciences in ways that only the greatest theatre ever can. A not-to-be-missed, Bag&Baggage style examination of one of the greatest plays in American history.
“A drama of emotional power and impact” —New York Post

Deception, murder and backstabbing (both literal and figurative) complicate Frederick Knott’s darkly brilliant tale of jealousy and greed…a story that inspired of one Alfred Hitchcock’s greatest cinematic masterpieces!
Motivated by his wife Margot’s large fortune and a previous infidelity, Tony Wendice decides it’s high time to murder her. In need of an alibi, he blackmails an old friend into doing the dirty work for him. His plans, of course, go awry when his friend winds up dead and Margot is arrested for murder.
With twists galore, Dial “M” for Murder remains one of the most clever and shocking plays of any genre…a perfect Halloween addition to the B&B line-up!
Made famous by Alfred Hitchcock in 1954, Dial “M “For Murder is one of the great classics of the mystery genre and a winner of a Tony Award prior to being adapted for the screen.
