Still remarkably relevant, The Children's Hour demonstrates how insidiously a lie can destroy lives. Martha and Karen run an all-girls boarding school, but when a troublemaking student spreads a rumor about a romance between them, the scandal rips apart friends and relationships. Even after the student realizes the damage she has done, she sticks by her falsehoods, leading to tragedy for the two women. This gripping drama, playwright Lillian Hellman's debut, ran for two years on Broadway and launched her success in writing for the stage and screen. See this provocative Desert Foothills Theater production at Cactus Shadows Fine Ars Center in Scottsdale.
This show is recommended for patrons age 13 or older.
