Event

The Children's Hour
THE CHILDREN'S HOUR
by Lillian Hellman
directed by Kate Patton
produced by Lou Okell
(no matinee on 9/6 - auditions 5/17 & 5/18)

SHOW DATES: August 28-Sept. 13
Fri. & Sat. at 8PM and Sun. at 2PM

Free preview for senior citizens on Thurs., Aug. 27 at 8PM

Set in a fictional New England town in the 1930s, The Childrens Hour tells the story of two women who are unjustly accused of homosexual activity by one of their students: one Mary Tilford. The outraged community (prompted by the influential Amelia Tilford, an upstanding member of Lancet--who also happens to be the indulgent grandmother of Mary) quickly withdraws all of their students, causing a witch hunt that ultimately forces the school to close. Not to be beaten, Martha and Karen take the accusations to court in a libel suit and lose-- despite the defense having no real foundation for a case (with the exception of the Marys testimony). Their lives quickly unravel as they become social pariahs. After months of trying to clear their names, Martha realizes that she did in fact have sexual feelings for Karen, and eventually the guilt and despair cause her to commit suicide. At its premiere, Hellmans The Childrens Hour was a controversial piece that caused the author to be blacklisted from Hollywood. Today, it remains a haunting reminder of the horrors of intolerance. --Stage Agent

THE CHILDREN'S HOUR is presented through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.
