A dramatic reflection of how personal injuries or betrayal of one may affect the entire society, how easy it is to manipulate the crowd and turn people against each other – how easy it is to unleash mass hysteria or succumb to paranoia. “Panic lurks inside every society and if there is someone unscrupulous enough to unleash it, it may bring death to many people. And the play is about a town that simply explodes with fear,” said Miller about his drama. It is a warning against fanaticism that had been as dangerous in the past times as it is now. Especially if it is hidden behind populist values that are seemingly democratic, legal, and spiritually candid.
