480 West 42nd Street New York, NY 10036 Tickets: (212) 244-7529

Written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Suzan-Lori Parks, The Red Letter Plays: Fucking A and In the Blood are new productions of two modern-day remixes of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic novel The Scarlet Letter that conjure 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 freedom—and nothing will deter Hester from her quest. In this wild-eyed blend of story and song, directed by Obie Award-winner Jo Bonney (Father Comes Home From the Wars), Hester’s branded letter A becomes a provocative emblem of vengeance, violence, and sacrifice.

Directed by Jo Bonney.

First Performance: August 22, 2017
