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

Honestly thought this play would be funny but did not find it funny. The basic premise of this play is that it is created in 24 hours (including actors learning lines and doing 1 run through prior to performance). Since this play was made at the last minute, jokes were just not funny but more so stupid. But the actors should get some credit for learning all of the lines and scenes in less than 24 hours.
Overall, would not come back for this place. Oh and this tiny theater is a hard find, it's located right next to an Artist Material store and also right across the street from Shakey's Pizza. There is plenty of free street parking.
These shows typically contain adult language and content, and are not recommended for children.
Running time: Approximately 75 minutes, with no intermission.
