With the TV lighting up his living room, Arthur Miller watched his director friend, Elia Kazan, identify fellow dramatists as communists during the house on un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) hearings. Miller feared that his own communist activities would be revealed. It was then that The Crucible began to form in his mind.
