Publisher's Summary

In the rigid theocracy of Salem, Massachusetts, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town. In the ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor to testify against neighbor, The Crucible mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria in the 1950s.
(P)1994 L.A. Theatre Works

Why is this labeled "unabridged"?

What disappointed you about The Crucible?

Depending on which audible/amazon screen you are on, this is labeled as "unabridged." However it is NOT! There are bits and pieces missing out of many lines from certain scenes. I was having my students read along to it on some days, but even with warning that it wasn't exact, it was so confusing to them that many would just stare into space while listening--which means that they miss scene directions, etc. Also, since I used my credits to "purchase" it, I apparently don't get a refund or option to "return"! Very disappointed that while it is a GREAT performance, they felt the need to slice up the lines and YET still call it unabridged!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Crucible?

Great play overall.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Great performance.

Any additional comments?

Amazon/audible needs to be more explicit and straight-forward when including information about abridged/unabridged versions!

Abridged Version

What made the experience of listening to The Crucible (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

As an English teacher I enjoy listening to well performed plays...and so do my students. The actors perform admirably.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Crucible (Dramatized)?

Stacy Keach is magnificent as John Proctor. "My Name man, my name."

Any additional comments?

I wish there was a notation that this is an abridged version of the play.

Food for thought

What made the experience of listening to The Crucible the most enjoyable?

A star-studded cast for a play that's become a classic in its own right. As an analysis of human nature and fanatism it remains thoroughly current.

Too fast

The actors gabbled so fast that I had trouble discerning one whispering voice from another, and don't listen to this as you fall asleep because you end up straining to find out what is being said in between screams and barking dogs! A real shame.

Adapted

The story was ok, but it would've been better if it was not adapted. It skipped a lot of lines.
