Josie Buchanan ACT 1 ACT 2 The witch trials started because of the girls. We found out that Proctor has committed adultery with Abigail. Some people that were accused confessed to witchcraft and others denied it. Those who denied it where hung. Elizabeth got accused of witchcraft by Abigail. Betty Parris and Sarah Good were lying in their beds not moving. Parris called in the doctor to see what was wrong with Betty and the doctor said there is no type of medicine that can help. Mr. Parris thought that Abigail was doing witch craft. Then everyone starts talking about the Devil. They called reverend Hale to see his opinion. ACT 3 John Proctor, Giles Corey and Francis Nurse went to court to defend their wives. They bring a list with names that says that their wives are not witches. Giles Corey brings another piece of evidence saying that Thomas Putnam told his daughter to condemn people to witchcraft. Then the court asked them who told him that and he refused to tell so they sent him to jail. Then Proctor said that they should believe Abby because he had committed adultery with her. ACT 4 A lot of people are in jail for witchcraft, when Abigail sees this she is scared and she leave town and took Parris's money. Hale returns to help the accused by suggesting that they should confess. He tries to convince Elizabeth to change Johns mind. Then Elizabeth makes Proctor change his mind so that he will confess, but when Proctor was in court Danforth told him that his confession will be nailed on the church door. That made Proctor furious so he changed his mind and died for it. Internal Conflict Situational Irony External Conflict Dramatic Irony Verbal Irony Abigail has a choice to make. She has to choose to tell everyone that she is faking all of this, because she loves John Proctor. Or to keep telling making up lies and not tell anyone what really happened with John and her. John Proctor has a problem with Abigail. John has to committed adultery with Abigail. So he has to chose to not want to ruin his name or go to jail. He tells the court but what he has done but to prove what he did was true his wife chooses to protect his name instead. When John Proctor tells the court that he has committed adultery and to prove it he says that Goody Proctor also knows about this. Then the court call her and makes her testify but she lies to protect John. But she didn't know that John told the court about his adultery. Hale tells the accused to confess even if they were innocent. This is ironic because those who are honest die and those who confess even though they are lying will live. When John Proctor tells Mary Warren that she is 18 now and doesn't have to go to bed now. But Proctor really means for her to go to bed now. False Accusations Both In the witch trails and in the red scare people were falsely accused. In both the crucible and the red scare people who were accused had to give names or go to jail for not telling the courts. Name that name ! People and Characters? The Crucible was made during the red scare. So the Crucible was a representation of the red scare. therefore the character and the people during the red scare are similar. The Hollywood ten were a the people in the crucible who didn't confess. Then the Abigail is McCarty and the courts are HUAC. Vocabulary game
