WORLD PREMIERE

Named The Wall Street Journal’s 2017 Playwright of the Year, Kate Hamill is celebrated for her female-centered classics—and SCR has her latest world premiere! Get ready for Nathaniel Hawthorne’s acclaimed masterwork in a most riveting staging. Two years after her husband goes missing, intelligent, strong-willed Hester Prynne has a child and gets branded an adulteress. Further defying Puritan ideals, she refuses to reveal the father’s identity and is condemned to wear a scarlet A to mark her shame. Then her estranged husband shows up—bent on revenge.
