In the Blood by Suzan-Lori Parks

Friday, March 12, 2021

8:00 pm - 11:59 pm

In the Blood is one of Suzan-Lori Parks’ Red Letter plays. It is a riff on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlett Letter. We encounter the life of Hester La Negrita, a mother five, homeless and living under a bridge. Used by the system and deadbeat men; Hester attempts to find joy and hope through her children only to encounter devastating consequences.

This play (originally scheduled for February 20th-22nd) will now be presented virtually beginning Friday, March 12th at 8:00pm and will be continuously viewable until Sunday, March 14th at 11:00pm.
