The Scarlet Letter Presented by Core Theatre Ensemble
Core Theatre is proud to present THE SCARLET LETTER as part of the Norfolk Theatre Festival at the Historic Wells Theatre!
Plan your Valentine’s Day right!
This classic tale of forbidden love and irrevocable guilt is presented with Core’s inventive blend of literature, theatre, music, and dance and is a truly entertaining way to spend the evening.
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.”
Haunting and beautiful. Come with expectations, but be ready to throw those out the door, because it probably isn’t what you remember.
