The Crucible

by Arthur Miller

Analysis: Genre

Drama

The Crucible is a four-act dramatic play, produced on Broadway and later made into a film. It uses pure dialogue to convey the tension, resolution, and themes, with a few directions for action. It was intended to be performed rather than read. Though most people nowadays experience the play on the page, it really works best as a stage production.
