Upcoming Performance


By Kimberly Belflower

Directed by Felicia Bertch

In present day Appalachian Georgia, a high school class explores the seminal American Classic, The Crucible. As scandal swirls in their community and old heroes are unmasked, the English assignment become uncomfortably relevant to the students. The line between witch and heroine blurs in this post-me-too examination of power, love, and sex education. Our production of John Proctor is the Villain deals frankly with issues related to sexual assault, sexual exploitation, grooming, non-sexual violence, mental health, abusive relationship dynamics, mental health challenges, racially charged language and other potentially activating topics. We do not recommend this performance for patrons under 13 years of age.

All Admission - $5
