Excerpt: In The Blood is a play written by Suzan-Lori Parks which first premiered at The Joseph Papp Public Theatre on November 1999. Parks borrowed many aspects from Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter," and wanted to create a play based on the novel. She originally wanted to call the play Fucking A, but scrapped the idea. She later wrote the story based on the main character from the Scarlet Letter, and turned the story into more modern era, and change the title to "In The Blood" Suzan-Lori Parks became a nominee for the Pulitzer prize for this play in 2000, but later won the prize for another work Topdog/Underdog. In The Blood tells the story about a mother, Hester, and her five fatherless children, trying to find help to make her children's lives successful. Living in poverty and having the reputation as a "slut" on her, her children and her future begins to grow dim. Hester seizes the opportunity to receive help from her children's fathers, with hopes that one may help them. The play moves to other characters' stories (confessions) such as the doctor, welfare, and her friend, who is involved with Hester's struggling predicament. Throughout the play, Hester struggles to find help for her children in this shocking tragedy by Suzan-Lori Parks based on The Scarlet Letter. In The Blood consists of two acts and nine scenes, and is of a linear plot style.

    This is a review of Death of the Last Black Man... not this commentary book. Didn't really click with me until I started reading it aloud. She twists words in really magical ways and the section where Black Man can't breathe reads unbelievably presciently. Do I understand all (or even most) of it? No. But have I ever read something like this? Also no. Worth the read, for its incisive reclaiming of Black stereotypes and her remarkable language.
