“The Crucible” Mock Trial
The scenario:
John Proctor is not dead. Before Rebecca Nurse, Martha Corey, and John Proctor were hanged, a riot began to take place and was only stopped because Judge Danforth promised to hold a trial for the accused, John Proctor among them. John Proctor willingly had an affair with a young Puritan girl, Abigail Williams. Did Proctor take advantage of a young girl’s inexperience? It was Abigail’s vengeance that ignited a witch-hunt in a community whose “godly” Puritan image belied their dark secrets. If Proctor would have told of the affair from the very beginning, could he have saved many lives before the trials went rampant? Is Proctor to blame for further damaging an unstable emotionally troubled girl whose vengeance ravaged an entire community?
*** If found guilty he dies and his land will be auctioned leaving his sons without an inheritance. If found guilty but his moral character is believed to be redeemed the community can legally relinquish his estate to his sons. If found not guilty, his life will be saved.
