About The Performance
Columbia University School of Arts MFA Acting Cohort of 2024 presents Suzan-Lori Parks’ F***ing A, directed by Benton Greene.
F***ing A, Suzan-Lori Parks’ innovative twist on The Scarlet Letter, is a timely and mystical story following a noble mother and her wayward son. The small town abortionist, Hester Smith, embarks on an unyielding quest to buy her imprisoned son’s freedom—and nothing will get in her way. Through a unique blend of storytelling and song, Hester’s branded letter A emerges as a thought provoking beacon of revenge, violence, and unflinching sacrifice.
This play has a runtime of two hours and contains challenging material including: graphic violence, including depictions of blood; non-consentual sexual contact and sexual assault; strong language; discussion of pregnancy, infertility, and abortion.
