A story of significant events involving witchcraft, and murderous double-crossing town members is a play written by Arthur Miller: The Crucible. In The Crucible many people accuse other members of the town. These actions performed by the town members show their real personality and real incentive. Even though most people accused others, the people who didn’t share their accusations were still responsible for the outcome of the events. Sometimes an act of negative intimation to a loved one to do something, might backfire later.

The song “Save Me”, by Shinedown, could be connected to Elizabeth’s character because of the hardships she had to go through.

The Crucible is not a play that wants for unique characters that call for an ability to bring nuance to the role. Many characters fit the ideas we may have of what a person living in the late 1600s would be like but they are given additional qualities that make some of their actions understandable to the modern reader. I doubt that I would be able to capture the manipulative energy Abigail gives off though I might fit her profile based solely on some of my appearance. And while I would certainly be able to make a wonderful John Proctor, it is more likely that I would be cast instead as the less adulterous of the Proctors.
