Rating: 4.5/5

Well, it’s pretty unusual to be able to categorise a play as both fiction and non-fiction. Before going into this, I mostly knew Arthur Miller for being one of Marilyn Monroe’s husbands, but it turns out that he’s actually a pretty good writer. Who knew?

When I started reading this, a few of my friends had mentioned that it was one of their favourite plays, and I can see why. It really is excellent, both as a straight up account of the Salem Witch Trials and as an allegory of some of the witch hunts that we see on social media. It really isn’t one to be missed.
