Review Text

This is more than merely the text of the drama now playing on Broadway. The playwright has inserted, as main characters are introduced, brief biographical bits; he has an introduction on the historical accuracy of the play, and considerable descriptive matter on Salem and the villagers and the customs of the times. All of this adds considerably to the understanding of the play itself- sets the key and the mood. With this additional material the play makes particularly good reading. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
