Written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Suzan-Lori Parks,  The Red Letter Plays: Fucking A is a new production of a modern-day remix of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic novel The Scarlet Letter that conjures a distinct interpretation 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.
