What happened when the people of Salem spoke out after the execution of the witches in 1692?

Who can be trusted?

In 1692, 19 people were executed for witchcraft and the whole village was engulfed in fear

But what actually happened in Salem?

This play re-tells the Witch Trials by combining historical evidence with a healthy dose of imagination, and exploring the build-up of hysteria in the village

It covers important issues of prejudice and peer pressure, gang mentality, suspicion and fear

Salem is ideal for preparation work for The Crucible

It also acts as an interesting comparison text to Miller's play, placing emphasis on different events and characters
