Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Suzan-Lori Parks' In The Blood finally gets its first major UK production after first impressing in New York in 1999. Ellen McDougall directs a revival as part of the Donmar Warehouse 2020 season.
Based on Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1850 novel The Scarlett Letter the show follows Hester, an impoverished single mother of five who faces judgement and prejudice. Illiterate, unloved and desperate to take care of her children, she is branded a slut and taken advantage of by those who should help.
The exploration of poverty, vulnerability and the judgement of women remain pertinent to modern audiences, and a 2019 revival of In The Blood in New York described it as 'enduringly fresh'. We look forward to seeing how the story plays out afresh on the Donmar stage.
