“Be true—be true—be true!” Strikingly authentic sets and costumes help bring to life Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic meditation upon the power of sin, guilt, and Nature. Set in 17th-century Puritan Boston, this faithful production stars Meg Foster as the beautiful Hester Prynne, condemned by law to wear a “brand of sin and infamy”—a scarlet “A”—for having had a child out of wedlock. (A Latitudes reproducible activities packet provides literary and social studies resources about the story and the period.) Also stars John Heard and Kevin Conway. Closed captioned. Color. Total time: 4 hours. WGBH Boston.
