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.
