There was one scene in particular that appeared to be very well directed. Act two takes place in the common room of the Proctors house about a week after the initial scene in the Reverends home. This scene was especially w...

My nickels were dutifully turned over every Thursday, knowing that I was saving some poor baby an eternity of Purgatory, simply because she or he hadn't been baptized.
