Genome: [r4 Bd=19700316] The Crucible by ARTHUR MILLER Donald Wolfit and Donald Houston with Jane Wenham , William Eedle and Pinkie Johnstone Salem, Massachusetts, in the spring of the year 1692
Of The Crucible the author has said that he wanted to write a play that ' would lift out of the morass of subjectivism the squirming, single-defined process which would show that the sin of public terror is that it divests man of conscience, of himself.' It is not irrelevant that The Crucible was first performed on Broadway in 1953 - in the McCarthy era. Cast in order of speaking:

Genome: [r4 Bd=19700420] The Master Builder by HENRIK IBSEN translated by MICHAEL MEYER adapted by JOHN GIBSON with Leo McKern and Billie Whitelaw
When the play was broadcast in 1967 Gilbert Phelps wrote: He (Ibsen) had frequently compared his work to that of the builder, and there seems little doubt that the churches which his hero Halvard Solness had built in his youth stood partly for his own earlier romantic plays; the dwelling-houses of Solness's middle years for his ' social plays ' - and the tower from which Solness falls to his death for Ibsen's own return to the more imaginative explorations of his youth, with all the dangers which he knew were involved.
