The fourth act takes place in a Salem jail cell later in the fall. The mood is gloomy and depressing. Many people have been thrown in prison and await execution over lies created by a few girls. Act one begins in a small upper bedroom of the home of Reverend Samuel Parris, who kneels in prayer at the bed of his daughter, Betty. The story has gone from a "sick" girl to innocent people set to be executed.
