Showcasing the destructive power of lies, the play depicts the experiences of the headmistresses of a girls’ boarding school. The two women, friends since college, are accused of conducting an illicit lesbian relationship by a bratty, compulsively lying student to disastrous effect.
Banned from being staged in London and Boston when it frst debuted in 1934, the play’s gay themes remain a significant milestone in American letters and an important piece of the contemporary American theatre repertoire. Led by a terrifically talented cast including Laura Peterson (Bus Stop, 2017). Directed by Neiry Rojo.
“‘The Children’s Hour’ has sturdy dramatic strengths, and one suspects that Arthur Miller must have learnt from it when writing ‘The Crucible.’” – The Telegraph
