The Children's Hour
- By: Lillian Hellman
- Directed by: Maddy Brown & Aella Rose-Hill
- Dates: May 9-12
A private school for young girls is scandalized when one spiteful student, Mary Tilford, accuses the two young women who run the school of having a lesbian relationship. This explosive drama written by the virtuosic Lillian Hellman made waves when it premiered in 1934. Herself a target of the McCarthy era blacklisting of Hollywood and Broadway artists, to Hellman this was a play about the evil power of slander.
