Beside above, what happened in the crucible Act 1? In Act 1, Reverend Parris is with his sick daughter Betty. We meet the girls who begin the witchcraft rumors, who had been seen dancing in the woods with a slave named Tituba. One of the girls, Abigail, who had an affair with a townsman, John Proctor, had tried to use witchcraft to harm his wife.
Moreover, who is to blame for the hysteria in the crucible Act 1?
Reverend Parris is 15% to blame, because he had lied in the court instead of confessing about what he really seen on the night before the play, just because he didn't want to ruin his reputation. Reverend Parris knew what was going on, but was scared to admit it and decided to stick up for his girls and his reputation.
What is Tituba's role in Act 1?
Tituba is Reverend Parris' slave. In Act 1, Abby says Tituba offered her blood to drink and she refused. Right after that, Abby says Tituba made her and Betty drink. Throughout the course of the play, Abby looks for others to blame and this time it was Tituba.
