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: Suzan-Lori Parks. In this modern day riff on The Scarlet Letter, Hester, a young, homeless mother of five, must find a way to provide for and protect 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.
"…extraordinary new play…taut and packed…Ms. Parks' writing has grown leaner and hungrier…IN THE BLOOD is about the way we live now, and it is truly harrowing…You will leave…feeling pity and terror. And because it is a work of art, you will leave thrilled, even comforted by its mastery…" — The New York Times.
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.
