In 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts, Abigail, niece to the minister, accuses several local women of witchcraft. In the ensuing panic other girls take up the call. Protagonist John Proctor and his wife Elizabeth recognize that their old household assistant Abigail is behind the trouble, and soon Elizabeth herself is implicated and jailed. In an attempt to save his wife, John Proctor reveals to the court that Abigail is lying to get Elizabeth out of the way so that Abigail can resume her affair with John. Elizabeth is called upon to verify her husband’s confession, and, fearing for his life, denies it. His evidence is dismissed, and John is accused of witchcraft. Like his wife, Proctor refuses to join those who have confessed to witchcraft to save their lives, and the curtain falls as he goes to his hanging a good man.
