Classic Quotes

Colin McColl (2007)

Colin McColl
Auckland Theatre Company
Director of "The Crucible"

Arthur Miller's 1952 play of The Crucible is based on the 1692 witch trials of Salem, Massachusetts - which Miller used as an allegory for McCarthyism and the Red Scare. Director Colin McColl says the parallels today are startling.

"The Peter Ellis Christchurch creche thing is a perfect example of a community gone mad with a witch hunt."
