The Scarlet Letter
About The Scarlet Letter
Named The Wall Street Journal’s 2017 Playwright of the Year, Kate Hamill is celebrated for her female-centered classics — and now she's bringing her latest world premiere to South Coast Rep! 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.
