The power of one Abigail from Arthur Miller’s The Crucible was enough to kill dozens of her fellow townsfolk and cripple the local economy in the process. I can only imagine what righteous havoc the Eight Abigails in Kaitlin McCarthy’s dance will bring. Judging by her recent work, reframing “a whore’s vengeance,” as John Proctor describes Abigail’s false accusations, as a sympathetic act of rebellion against a repressive, Puritan society seems to be very much in McCarthy’s wheelhouse.
