But the higher on adrenaline one goes, the harder one will be hit once it is over, and that’s what happened to us all.

But in Arthur Miller's edgy masterpiece, that very belief will have poisonous consequences when a vengeful teenager accuses a rival of witchcraft- and then when those accusations multiply to consume the entire village.
