Overview

Now extended through october 15!

In the Blood’s Hester La Negrita is a penniless mother of five condemned by the men who love her, in this play hailed by The New York Times as "…a work of art. You will leave thrilled, even comforted by its mastery." Hester turns to former lovers, friends, and the institutions meant to support her, only to be spurned by them all with devastating consequences, in this new production directed by Obie Award-winner Sarah Benson (An Octoroon).  

This play is being produced in tandem with Suzan-Lori Parks' Fucking A, directed by Jo Bonney, as part of the event we are calling The Red Letter Plays, a unique opportunity to see two plays by one writer in dialogue with each other. To find out more about why we are presenting these two riffs on Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter together, click here
