1. Choose a character from the following list:
John Proctor Tituba
Elizabeth Proctor Reverend Parris
Abigail Williams Mary Warren
Reverend Hale Giles Corey
Using your chosen character, explain how one significant choice he or she made in
The Crucible drives the plot/conflict and what affect that choice had on at least one
other person in the story (i.e.: how it helped or hurt someone else’s cause). Be sure
to include examples from the film.
2. The Crucible was first produced in 1953 when Senator McCarthy instigated a
series of investigations to “root out” suspected Communists nationwide everywhere
from the State Department to Hollywood to the U.S. Army. In his attempts to bring
down these so-called Communists, his accusations were often based on flimsy
evidence and hearsay. Using examples from the play/film, how is The Crucible a
criticism of McCarthy’s tactics?
