House of the Seven Gables
House of the Seven Gables
By Vin Morreale Jr. Adapted from the classic novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Cast: 8m., 6w. (plus extras who may be doublecast.) Early America springs to life in this engaging stage adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic novel. This literate and lively play follows the demise and resurrection of the once-prosperous Pyncheon clan. The cruel and cunning Colonel Pyncheon brings a curse down on his entire family, when he hangs an innocent man. More than a century later, a young woman arrives to find the last of the family, and the mysterious House of the Seven Gables, beset by dark secrets and untimely deaths. Audiences will shiver, shriek and finally cheer as greed and corruption give way to goodness, loyalty and romance. If you're looking for the perfect blend of history, humor and haunting, step inside the House of the Seven Gables. One int. set. Minimal exterior scenes. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
