“It’s about the power of a lie,” said award-winning playwright Lillian Hellman of The Children’s Hour–the play with which she entered the theater to a resounding thunder of acclaim. At a girls’ school, a malicious youngster who’s angry with her teacher starts a rumor that has tragic consequences. By the end, souls are wrenched, ideals are questioned, and hearts are left bleeding. Based on a true story, Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour is a drama about gossip’s ability to destroy. Initially banned in Boston, Chicago, and London, the original production ran for a record 700 performances to both critical and audience acclaim.
A special 2:00 PM matinee of The Children’s Hour is scheduled for Wednesday, April 18.
On Sunday, April 29, a 7:00 PM evening performance replaces the regularly scheduled 3:00 PM matinee.
There is no performance scheduled for Thursday, May 3.
