We are so excited to offer the WORLD PREMIERE of JF Dacey’s adaptation of The House of the Seven Gables, starting tonight. The play is based on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel and shares the story of two dueling families and their world of guilt, revenge, and greed. If you’ve read the book, you’ll be delighted to see it come to life. If you’ve struggled with Hawthorne’s style or haven’t read some classic American literature in a few years, the adaptation does a wonderful job of opening up Hawthorne’s world to a new generation of fans.

Big thanks to the Salem News for their interview with Mr. Dacey and for sharing the details of this weekend’s coming attraction.

There’s still a bit of time to get your tickets and help us to kick off the 350th anniversary of The House of the Seven Gables. Click here for online sales.
