This theatrical adaptation of a classic short story written by Nathaniel Hawthorne (The Scarlet Letter, The House of the Seven Gables) tells the tale of Reverend Hooper. The minister of a small town in Massachusetts circa 1710, Rev. Hooper creates a significant stir when he shows up for a Sunday service wearing a black veil over his face. With no explanation, he continues to wear the veil for the duration of the day, even during a wedding ceremony. As a matter of fact, it doesn't look like Rev. Hooper ever plans to remove this mysterious black veil from his face. But ... why? Hawthorne's story is a timeless examination of fear, guilt and superstition that bears more than a passing similarity to some beliefs that still persist today. Learn More

This was a playful and insightful piece. It was authentic and fun to watch. It was also interestingly done because it could have be simply a one woman show but additional interest was brought to the stage through the other players. I think many women will be able to relate to parts of this performance and not feel so alone in what they have been through.

Based on her popular blog, the play will be filled with discussion of abuse, the beauty of discovering lost talents, unrequited love — and clowns. And sock puppets. And maybe some martial arts. And one beautiful heart-breaking tango.
