About the Show/Event
Information for In the Blood at Donmar Warehouse, West End (Play). An urban American "riff" on Nathaniel Hawthorneâs The Scarlet Letter and shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize, In the Blood is the story of Hester La Negrita, mother to five children, of five fathers, who makes a home beneath a bridge on the streets of New York. Hounded by her need to provide a better future for her family, she bargains her hopes on the only people left in her world, and comes up short. This raw, physical production of Parks' seminal work will take us to this world that exists on the flipside of the American Dream.
