Arthur Miller’s masterpiece centers around a farmer, his wife and a young servant girl, all three of which are dangerously intertwined in a story of deceit, jealousy and hostility. How far can a young girl’s word go in the court of law? Winner of the 1953 Tony Awards® for Best Play, this exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society.

Frankenstein’s Lost and Bewildered Creature is Cast Out in a Hostile World by his Horror-struck Creator.
Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s lost and bewildered Creature is cast out in a hostile world by his horror-struck creator. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. This brilliant adaptation of Mary Shelly’s thrilling and deeply disturbing classic take raises urgent issues of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil.
