|Synopsis||The Red Letter Plays, produced together for the first time, explode our ideas of love, society, sex, and power with wit and fearlessness. In these modern remixes of Nathaniel Hawthornes classic novel The Scarlet Letter, Pulitzer Prize-winner Suzan-Lori Parks conjures two distinct interpretations of Hester, Western literature's most famous adulteress. |
In Fucking A, Hester Smith, the revered and reviled local abortionist, hatches a plan to buy her jailed son's freedomand nothing will deter Hester from her quest. In this wild-eyed blend of story and song, Hester's branded letter A becomes a provocative emblem of vengeance, violence, and sacrifice.
|Other Info||The Red Letter Plays: In The Blood plays simultaneously at The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre. |
