Tonight I auditioned for a production of Arthur Miller's The Crucible. It's my favorite of his, although I haven't seen or read them all.
Back when I was a kid, everyone thought Death Of A Salesman was his masterwork, but I have the impression that Crucible gets more attention nowadays.
In the scene I read, I played Danforth, a deputy governor of Massachusetts, one of the officials running the Salem witch trials.
He's a scary dude in the scene I played.
He's making a witness sweat
while controlling his own inner panic
trying to deal with the threat
of secrets dark and Satanic.
