POSTPONEMENT NOTICE: With regret and out of an abundance of caution, taking into account our responsibility as leaders of this group, all board members present at our August 2021 meeting were in favor of postponing rehearsals and performances of The House of the Seven Gables to an undetermined time, in adherence to guidance by the Nashoba Board of Health.
Dunstable Theater Collaborative is proud to present the world premiere of The House of the Seven Gables: A Romance. This great American novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne was adapted for the stage by local Lowell playwright Jack Dacey, and is directed by Jack as well! This performance will be the play’s World Premiere.
Told through the eyes of the unassuming boarder Jonathan Holgrave, The House of the Seven Gables revolves around a curse set on Colonel Pyncheon in revenge for stealing Matthew Maule’s land–and his life. Through a century and a half, the curse affects the members of both families, and is embodied in the big crumbling mansion that is The House of the Seven Gables.
