(Applause Books). Leslie Fiedler pronounced it the first American tragedy. F.O. Mathiessen considered it the "Puritan Faust." Until now, it appeared that Nathaniel Hawthorne's haunting drama of judgement, alienation, and redemption would be forever confined to the page. Now comes the stage version to do it justice. DeMaiolo's brooding choruses of superstition and doubt hover like the furies hungry for vengeance on the "voluptuous Oriental" woman whose fate would commingle with every life in Salem. The audience joins the chorus as they weigh the American contract of freedom against the fine print of convention and taboo. Performance rights available from Applause.

Ugh. Ok, so I totally read this book in high school. Public high school...after eight years of Catholic. It was kind of an eye-opener. What I remember most is 1) being SO thankful I didn't live in that time period and 2) absolutely horrified at how women were treated.I should re-read it, and see if it's still as shocking to me.
