Conflict - The Crucible Act 1

Storyboard Description

Reverend Parris, Abigail’s Uncle, is conflicted about what to say to the townsfolk about what is happening in his household. He knows that many of his enemies are there. He feels they are out to get him, but he wants people to see the good in him and believe him to be godly. Yet he saw the girls dancing and it is believed they were conjuring up spirits which is witchcraft. Reverend Parris is conflicted about what he believes, concerned about his reputation, and what he should say to the townsfolk as their Reverend so this is a conflict of man vs. self.
