The Scarlet Letter

Core Theatre Ensemble

Thursday, February 14, 8PM

The Wells Theatre

This classic tale of forbidden love and irrevocable guilt is presented with Core’s inventive blend of literature, theatre, music, and dance.

Secrets, sin, and scripture keep a New World settlement alight with gossip and suspicion as Hester Prynne is accused of adultery. With her newborn child in hand she is sentenced to wear indefinitely the scarlet colored letter ‘A’ as a symbol of her sin while she continues to keep the father’s identity a secret even as her estranged husband re-emerges. In both the light and darkness there is "nothing is more wretched than the mind of a man conscious of guilt.”
