The Scarlet Letter

Apr 23rd-26th (Thurs, Fri, Sat @ 7:30pm Sun @ 2:00pm)

A drama by Halsted Welles, directed by Robert Rotenberry

In a Puritan settlement in Boston in the mid 1600’s, inside the jail is one Hester Prynne, an adulteress who's just about to be released from prison so that she can be paraded through town, displaying the scarlet "A" that she's been forced to wear as evidence of her adultery. The townspeople are outraged and it is supposed to be a mark of shame, but since Hester is a master at needlework, she makes her “A” beautiful. She has a baby daughter, Pearl, but her husband has been away for two full years. Hester has committed an inexcusable crime and has compounded it and confounded her prosecutors by refusing to name her partner in sin. The man who allows her to protect him suffers more from pangs of conscience than he would have from public humiliation. The dramatic climax shows us once again the timeless truth that compassion and understanding are forever more powerful than vengeance and cruelty.

Parental Guidance Suggested:  Some themes and language may not be appropriate for children elementary school age and younger.
