After seeing The Abbey Theatre’s production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, directed by Patrick Mason, I was better prepared to understand how fifteen people could have witnessed the apparitions on the side of a church in 1879.

 

The Crucible goes a long way towards explaining how the American people and their government saw weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

 

As Deputy-Governor Danforth noted: “But you must understand, sir, that a person is either with this court or he must be counted against it, there be no road between.”

 

The question I am left with is this: are we prepared to accept the consequences for ourselves and our nation. Something all American citizens need consider when watching the presidential debates. We must remember, the world is watching. And so far the verdict has been counted against us. The irony is that we can travel to Ireland to be reminded of our own past, present, and future.

 

If you have the pleasure of being in Ireland under a Dublin moon walking over the River Liffey this June, the Abbey Theatre’s production of The Crucible is a must see.

 

Bravo!
