The Crucible (by Arthur Miller) is presented by L.A. Theatre Works. This standalone audiobook app combines a professional audio recording with supplemental features for download-once, grab-and-go anywhere enjoyment.

It’s 1692 in the small Massachusetts village of Salem. A group of girls fell ill, with hallucinations and seizures. In the extremely religious context of Puritan New England, prominent members of the community see the Devil at work. In the rigid theocracy of Salem, Massachusetts, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town.

This play famously mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria that held the United States in its grip in the 1950s.

The Crucible won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1953.
