In the Blood

About

Hester and her five children are homeless and desperate for a way off the street.

Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Suzan-Lori Parks, this reenvisioning of Nathaniel Hawthornes The Scarlet Letter engages the audience in questions of societal and personal responsibility. In the Blood is presented in support of NC States campus-wide conversation related to the universitys common reading of Kathryn J. Edin and H. Luke Shaefers $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America. Play by Suzan-Lori Parks, directed by Lormarev Jones. This show is produced as part of University Theatres Open Door Series.
