Time of setting- around 1692

Place - Salem, a small town in colonial Massachusetts

Courtroom- where much of the hypocrisy takes place. The courtroom symbolizes the everything that is wrong with these witch hunts. It seeks to legitimize punishment with no grounds.

Jail- Well, it would be a sad place where the innocent languish.

Gallows- Again representing punishment without any truth.
