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
