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 effort fell pretty flat for me...they tried too hard to juxtapose too many disparate ideas and dialogue. Though it was "as billed," I had hoped more improv would have sprouted from the actors' energy. But it was not to be. They stuck to the purposefully thrown together script and never developed much of a an ensemble feeling to kick off the New Year.
