Read the book? Now, see the Play! Scarlet Letter

The classic novel “The Scarlet Letter” will come to life on the Tilson Auditorium stage at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 6 in conjunction with the 2010-2011 Performing Arts Series.¬†

Set in 1666, the Nathaniel Hawthorne novel tells the story of Hester Prynne, who lives in the Massachusetts Bay Colony with her only child. Scorned by her adulterous history, Hester bears the punishment of a scarlet “A” emblazoned on her chest. Just beyond Hester’s daily cloud creeps her husband, long believed dead, waiting to seek his revenge on Hester as well as the father of her child. A kiss, the scarlet letter and the punishing scaffold brings Hawthorne’s masterpiece to life.¬†

The performance will be presented by the National Players, America’s longest running classical touring company.

Tickets will be available at the door. Adult tickets are $16. Tickets are $10 for youth ages 2-18. ISU students are admitted free with a valid student ID and are invited to participate in a punch card program. Tickets are available in advance at the Hulman Center Ticket Office or by calling 1-877-ISU-TIXS.
