The Children’s Hour

“I’m hoping to explore how something so casual as an accusation from a child can expose the darker forces that are woven into our culture and viewpoints,” shares Adrienne Mackey, the director of The Children’s Hour. Her take on Lillian Hellman’s play, first staged on Broadway in 1934, delves into the aftermath of that accusation—that the headmistresses at an all-girls boarding school are in a romantic relationship with each other. At the time of its debut, its subject matter was deemed so inappropriate that the play was banned in multiple cities. Critically acclaimed and still timely, the play stirs emotions and raises questions not easily answered.
