Hate culture. Scapegoating. Trolling. Alternative facts. Slut shaming.
In today’s world of reduced privacy, increased bullying, intensified peer pressure, and notoriety through celebrity, there is no shortage of toxic, societal pressures that we cope with daily. Yet, these same themes were rampant in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic, “The Scarlet Letter” set in the 17th century, where subjects that were relevant in Hawthorne’s day are once again painfully relevant now. This adaptation (written by Kelli Tatum) explores the paths we can take as accused and accuser. While the plot is centered around a woman, it closely examines both men and women of the community, their fears, their transgressions, their shame and their choices.
