The Children's Hour

Playhouse 1960 presents The Children's Hour byLillian Hellman. Running May 2 through May 17.

First staged in 1934, Lillian Hellman's The Children's Hour still packs a powerful dramatic punch as it explores how one malicious lie can destroy several lives.

Karen and Martha run an all-girls boarding school, but when a disgruntled student starts a rumor about a romance between them, the scandal rips apart friends and relationships. Even after the student realizes the damage she's done, she sticks by her falsehoods, leading to yet more tragedy.

Revived here by Playhouse 1960, Hellman's debut work
