Location: President’s Lawn (a grassy field where chairs were set up in a theatre-in-the-round setting surrounding a fire pit)
Every character in The Crucible has fire inside them, it is this fire that motivates all of their actions and ultimately swallows the entire town in chaos. I thought the best way to showcase this was to have the audience surround a pit of fire and feel the suffocation the characters experience as everything falls apart. While this was ensuing, the sun was also setting, allowing for the final act to be lit only by the fire.
