This is a full-cast dramatization of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic masterpiece. The Scarlet Letter is set in seventeenth century Salem, Massachusetts, and concerns the public condemnation of Hester Prynne, who bears an illegitimate child. However, the story is not about adultery, nor is it specifically about sin. Rather it traces the effect of actual and symbolic sin on the mind and spirit of each character. In the end, The Scarlet Letter comes to stand not for adultery but for the guilt that is the common experience of all humans.

This L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance features Shirley Anderson, David Catlin, Raymond Fox, Joy Gregory, Michael Lapthorn, Heidi Stillman, and Andrew White.

About the Author
Author Nathaniel Hawthorne

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804–1864) was born in Salem, Massachusetts, and made his ambition to be a writer while still a teenager. He graduated from Bowdoin College in Maine, where the poet Longfellow was also a student, and spent several years traveling in New England and writing short stories before his best known novel, The Scarlet Letter, was published in 1850. His writing was not at first financially rewarding, and he worked as measurer and surveyor in the Boston and Salem Custom Houses. In 1853 he was sent to Liverpool as American consul and then lived in Italy before returning to the United States in 1860, where he died in his sleep four years later.
