The Crucible

By Rachel Bryant

John Procter

John Procter is a farmer/Puritan , who is married to Goody proctor. He committed adultery with another women (Abigail ) . But he is a good man who knows he has done wrong.

His motivation is to make things good with his wife again. For his wife now has trust issues with him , for of course he did commit adultery. So he try's to make things right through out the play to prove there is no witch craft so his wife won't be hung , because Abigail said Proctors wife walks with the devil.

"Abby , I may think softly of you from time to time. But I rather cut off my hand before I ever touch you again!" -John Proctor

John Proctor reminds me of Ghandi , because of the way he sticks up for his beliefs and is honorable.

I would cast Viggo Mortensen , because he is handsome and fights for what he believes in and they look a lot alike!

Elizabeth Proctor

Wife of John Proctor. She is also known as Goody Proctor , a good Puritan wife. She is accused of witchcraft by Abigail ( the one who had sex with John Proctor) .

Elizabeth's motivation is to protect her family and to devote her life to God. She is also motivated to keep her relationship alive.

(crying out) "You'll tear it free -- when you come to know that I will be your only wife, or no wife at all. She has an arrow in you yet, John Proctor, and you know it well! " - Elizabeth Proctor

Elizabeth Proctor is like Angelina Julie , because when Jennifer Ashton was trying to take Brad from her , Brad stayed devoted to Angelina.

If I were to pick someone to play Elisabeth it would be Kiera Knightly because , Kiera and Elizabeth both have an elegant look to them.

Abigail Williams

Abigail is a teen girl , who is the starter of blaming her wrong doings on witchcraft.

She also committed adultery with John Proctor.

Her motivation comes from the spite she has for John Proctor , because he won't love her. So she is motivated to kill Johns wife ( Elisabeth Proctor) in hope to take her place.

"You drank a charm to kill John Proctor's wife! You drank a charm to kill Goody Proctor! "- Betty Parris

In response

"Shut up! All of you. We danced. That is all, and mark this, if anyone breathe a word or the edge of a word about the other things, I will come to you in the black of some terrible night, and I will bring with me a pointy reckoning that will shudder you! And you know I can do it. I saw Indians smash my dear parents' heads on the pillow next to mine. And I have seen some reddish work done at night. And I can make you wish you had never seen the sun go down! "

Abigail is like Kesha , because they both have a bad reputations and are both hot and dangerous.

I would cast Kesha as Abigail Williams , because they are both hot and dangerous. And do not have the best reputation and kinda like her song " your love is my drug." Can relate to Abigail and her addiction to John.

Deputy Governor Danforth

He is the main judge of the court in Massachusetts, and a very threatening man. He is the man who chooses who will hang for witchcraft.

His motivation is to make his name seem good. And to get rid of all people who won't confess to witchcraft, that were blamed .

" These will be sufficient. Sit you down, children. Silently they sit. Your friend, Mary Warren, has given us a deposition. In which she swears that she never saw familiar spirits, apparitions, nor any manifest of the Devil. She claims as well that none of you have not seen these things either. Slight pause. Now, children, this is a court of law. The law, based upon the Bible, and the Bible, writ by Almighty God, forbid the practice of witchcraft, and describe death as the penalty thereof. But likewise, children, the law and Bible damn all bearers of false witness.Slight pause. Now then. It does not escape me that this deposition may be devised to blind us; it may well be that Mary Warren has been conquered by Satan, who sends her here to distract our sacred purpose. If so, her neck will break for it. But if she speak true, I bid you now drop your guile and confess your pretense, for a quick confession will go easier with you. Pause.Abigail Williams, rise. Abigail slowly rises. Is there any truth in this?"


Danforth is like hitler , because even though in his heart the teen girls are lying, he's killing innocent people.

I would cast Danforth as Benedict Cumberbatch , because of there intimidating appearance.

Marry Warren

Is the house servant for the Proctors ever since the incident happened with Abigail. Marry is a very shy girl , who is very dependent.

Her motivations are to make sure that she keeps her name safe. Also to make sure not to upset Abigail , because Abigail threatens her.

"What'll we do? The village is out! I just come from the farm; the whole country's talkin' witchcraft! They'll be callin' us witches, Abby! Abby, we've got to tell."

-Mary Warren

Mary is like a sheep , because sheep follow other sheep , even if they were to walk off a cliff.

My cast for Mary Warren would be Samantha Barks from Le Mis.

She is a women from Barbados and is thought as a crazy witch lady. She is the first to confess of witchery!

Her motivation is to stay alive. Also to protect the girls and go back to Barbados.

"You beg me to conjure! She beg memake charm-" -Tituba

Tituba is like a crazy old grandma , because you don't quite know what she means at all times.

I would cast Tituba as Danai Guria from walking dead.

Rebecca Nurse

An elder women who has many children. She is very sweet, godly and very experienced with kids.

Her motivations are God and faith and to keep true to the word of God. She knows she is right about these kids fibbing about witchcraft.

"so he is, then let us go to God for the cause of it. There is prodigious danger in the seeking of loose spirits. I fear it, I fear it. Let us rather blame ourselves and" - Rebecca Nurse

Rebecca Nurse is like Oprah , because of her kind and caring nature.

I would cast Betty White as my Rebecca Nurse.

Rev. Parris

Rev. Parris is the father of Bethany and uncle of Abigail. He is a starting rev , who believes in wealth.

His motivations are his daughter , and having a good reputation. He believes in the riches needed in a church and he wants him to be feared so people can't walk all over him.

"He say Mr. Parris must be kill! Mr. Parris no goodly man, Mr. Parris mean man and no gentle man, and he bid me rise out of my bed and cut your throat! They gasp. But I tell him "No! I don't hate that man. I don't want kill that man. " But he say, "You work for me, Tituba, and I make you free! I give you pretty dress to wear, and put you way high up in the air, and you gone fly back to Barbados!" And I say, "You lie, Devil, you lie!" And then he come one stormy night to me, and he say, "Look! I have white people belong to me. " And I look-and there was Goody Good." - Tituba

Rev. Parris is like the rev. From hunch back of Norte dame , because of their strong feel for the church and fear they strike.

I would cast Johnny depp as my Rev. Parris.
