IN THE BLOOD By Suzan-Lori Parks Announced At Fells Point Corner Theatre
An unflinching and incendiary look at motherhood, race and poverty, In The Blood serves as a bold and challenging work by one of America's greatest modern playwrights: Suzi Lori Parks. In this modern day riff on The Scarlet Letter, Hester, a young, homeless mother of five, must find a way to provide and protect for her children while living on the streets. While Hester's children fill her life with joy - providing loving comedy in a harsh world of poverty - everyone else in her life takes everything they can. A parable of injustice and cruelty, this play stares into a story that the world all too often looks away from.
Join us as Fells Point Corner Theatre brings to the stage In the Blood, Suzan-Lori Parks' Greek-style tragedy. An urban retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, audiences will be forced to re-examine their roles in the oppression of marginalized groups. Mari Andrea Travis directs the dramatic ensemble featuring Tina Canady, Adam Cooley, Christian Gonzalez, Betse Lyons, Justin Price and Dawn Taylor.
