When Hester Prynne commits an act of adultery, she is isolated and shamed by her community. Wrought with guilt that is veiled by piety, can she reconcile her duty with her desire? New Rep’s Classic Repertory Company’s mission is to make classic works come alive for today’s audiences with a tightly-knit ensemble of seven actors, original music, and a sharp attention to the text. Audiences are invited to examine these stories critically and to discover why they remain timeless.
