Get ready for an adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne‘s already racy story, The Scarlett letter, like you’ve never seen it before. Fucking A, written by Suzan-Lori Parks and directed by Malika Oyetimein opens this Tuesday, November 29 at Meany Studio Theater on University of Washington‘s campus. From event organizers:
“Suzan-Lori Parks’s haunting adaptation of The Scarlet Letter turns Nathaniel Hawthorne’s tale of an exiled adulteress into the tragic story of Hester Smith—branded A for Abortionist—plying her trade in hopes of buying her son’s freedom from prison. Employing Parks’s singular mingling of theatrical language, music, and dance, Fucking A is a scream of rage at the plight of those on the margins of society.”
Beware (or be titillated): The play contains nudity. Visit UW’s School of Drama for details on the cast and performances.
