The Crucible The theme that I chose for this play is, evil triumphs over good. To further this theme, I also added three sub-themes that ties in with my main theme. Which are accusations, greed, and hysteria. Accusations

Setting (time/place): Rev. Parris' House, upstairs, in Betty's bedroom
Characterization: Betty is feeling lost because she just woke up from her "spell." saying she wants her mama and pretending like she's flying outside her window.
