Pulitzer Prize-winner Suzan-Lori Parks exposes a poverty-stricken mother's battle to escape her sordid past in this modern retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter." This compelling drama explores the hand of fate and asks: Are we in charge of our own destiny, or is it all "in the blood?"
