CLASSIC/HORROR. This adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s gothic horror classic is true to the original story and provides a stunning stage experience. Goodman Brown, a Puritan who takes pride in his family’s history and reputation in Salem Village, leaves his home one evening on a nightmarish errand in which he must travel into a dense, shadowy forest. Along the way, Goodman Brown encounters a mysterious traveler with a walking stick that resembles a large black snake. The traveler convinces Goodman Brown to continue on into the heart of the gloomy forest. When Goodman Brown arrives at a clearing in the forest, he is shocked to see respected townspeople from Salem Village participating in a fiendish ceremony in front of a flaming stone altar.
