The Scarlet Letter
a drama by Phyllis Nagy, adapted from the novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Hawthorne’s magnum opus that explores sin, hypocrisy and society is vividly re-imagined in this sexually charged tale of obsession and revenge. Set in Puritan times, it is the story of Hester Prynne who gives birth after committing adultery, is forced to wear a scarlet letter “A,” and struggles to create a new life for herself and her child. The play has a decidedly contemporary slant that is told from the point of view of Pearl, Hester Prynne’s now grown and highly spirited daughter. It’s a brilliant, unusual adaptation of “the greatest American novel.”
(NOTE: The dates for THE SCARLET LETTER have been changed from those originally published).
