Scarlet Letter: This theatrical adaptation of the classic novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne maintains the same characters that brought the story to life in 1850. Set in Puritan Boston, MA during the 1600s, this play explores the idea of morality through the punishment of Hester Prynne, a young woman found guilty of committing adultery. She is forced to endure multiple forms of public humiliation, including wearing the titular scarlet letter upon her person for all who meet her to know and judge her for her sin. This tragic yet timeless story was adapted for the stage by Phyllis Nagy.
