American playwright Arthur Miller famously dramatized the Salem witch trials — and the McCarthy era —with his play “The Crucible.” And now Aurora Theatre is picking up the story ten years after Miller’s play ends. The theatre is staging Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's sequel, "Abigail/1720."

This production made a splash in Germany at the beginning of the millennium and now is being produced at regional theaters in the United States. The show takes the songs of the animated Disney movie and adapts them to Victor Hugo’s original text. The themes and the plot of the show also more closely resemble the novel.

A new production at Aurora Theatre is not split in two but “Split in Three.” That’s the title of Atlanta playwright Daryl Lisa Fazio’s play that opens tonight.

Split in Three,” which runs through May 28 at the Gwinnett venue, tells the story of two poor white sisters in 1969 Mississippi, living in a county that has yet to integrate its schools.
