    The Crucible - Arthur Miller


    ACT 1

    SCENE 1

    • Betty Parris is sick and people around her worried.

    • Tituba comes in to see if Betty is going to die.

    • Rev. Parris, betty’s dad, doesn’t want to think that this might be because of witchcraft. But he sends out for Rev. Hale (witchcraft expert) anyway.

    • Parris doesn’t want people to find out about his daughter because he doesn’t want to look like a putz in the town.

    • Abigail (Rev.’s niece) tells him that she was dancing with Tituba and some other chicks. They were dancing around a big cauldron.

    • All Rev. Parris cares about is his own good name in the community. He tells Abigail that it doesn’t matter if she confesses, people will see her as dirty anyway.

    • Parris tells Abigail that John Proctor’s wife, Elizabeth, doesn’t come to church because Abigail slept with John Proctor..

    • Abigail defends herself and calls Elizabeth a stinking liar.
