The playwright brings her legal eye to the production and bases the play on historical documents. Miller stages the performance with the best local performers and gives the production a realism that rocks a contemporary audience. 

The performances are FREE with admission to the Great American Harvest Fest. This is a first come, first seated event. The play may not be suitable for very small children. But worth it for everyone else!
