The Children's Hour - Lillian Hellman

Lillian Hellman upended American theatre in 1934 with her debut play The Children’s Hour. When an unruly student accuses schoolteachers Karen and Martha of a lesbian affair, they must navigate the truth among the lies as they fight to save their all-girls boarding school in rural Massachusetts. Breaking open The Children’s Hour, this production explores the classic play’s cultural impact and the tension between shame, survival, and how we imagine a queer future.
