Abstract:

The play 'Naming Names' re-creates the interrogation of U.S. playwright Arthur Miller by Senator Joseph McCarthy's House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in 1956. Excerpts from Miller's 'The Crucible' (performed by the same cast) interwoven with this dramatization highlight fundamental themes in each. Miller had written 'The Crucible' as a reaction to the harm inflicted by HUAC earlier in the decade, saying that until that time he had not understood the "inexplicable darkness" that prevented people from seeing evil and denouncing it.
