Fox Chapel Area High School students will perform their fall play, “The Crucible,” free for district senior citizens age 60 and older on Nov. 7.

The show, which tackles the subject of McCarthyism, will begin at 3:45 p.m. and refreshments will be served prior to the performance at 3 p.m. in the auditorium lobby.

Reservations are requested by calling 412-967-2410.

Written by Arthur Miller, the drama portrays the Salem witch trials of 1692 Massachusetts. It is a veiled script for the McCarthyism of the 1950s when people, including Miller, were accused by the U.S. government of being communist. It premiered on Broadway in 1953 and won the Tony Award for Best Play.

Local director and producer Kristiann Josephs will run the show, along with teacher Joseph Gass as technical coordinator and teacher Mary Beth Dixon as costume/props coordinator.

The public can view performances during a three-day run from Nov. 8-10 in the high school auditorium, 611 Field Club Road, O’Hara. Shows begin at 7 p.m.

Tickets cost $8 and will be sold at the door.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
