According to the real events and historical people, this drama is a sweltering portrait of the community overcome by hysteria. In a rigid Salem theocracy, rumors that females are practicing the witchcraft galvanize the most suspicions and fears of the town. Additionally, when the young girl accuses the Elizabeth Proctor of completely being a witch, self-satisfied church leaders, as well as townspeople, maintain that Elizabeth is taken to trial. The cruelty of prosecutors, as well as the eagerness of surrounding people to testify against the neighbor smartly, illuminates the vicious power of communally sanctioned violence.
