In the Blood by Suzan-Lori Parks

Saturday, March 27, 2021

12:00 am - 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 will be presented virtually beginning Friday, March 26th at 8:00pm and will be continuously viewable until Sunday, March 28th at 11:00pm. Tickets and streaming will be available through ShowTix for a small fee. A link to purchase tickets will be added to this page closer to the performance dates.

Please note: Due to delays caused by the winter storm in Texas, this event, which was originally scheduled for the weekend of March 12th, has been rescheduled to the weekend of March 26th.
