Theatre Harrisburg Presents The Scarlet Letter at The Krevsky Center

Hawthorne’s masterpiece of character under stress

January 24 - February 2, 2020

This production takes place at The Krevsky Center, which is located at: 

513 Hurlock St.
Harrisburg, PA 17110

Hawthorne’s masterpiece of character under stress lends itself dramatically to stage presentation – for we see the men smile knowingly at the scarlet letter on Hester’s Breast, and we hear the sneers of the holier-than-thou women as they gossip avidly about her secret! Hester has committed an inexcusable crime and has compounded it and confounded her persecutors by refusing to name her partner in sin. The man who allows her to protect him suffers more from pangs of conscience than he would have from public humiliation. The dramatic climax reveals to us once again the timeless truth that compassion and understanding are forever more powerful than vengeance and cruelty.
