Revolving around a scandal at a girls’ boarding school, Lillian Hellman’s 1934 breakout hit play, The Children’s Hour, is a heart-wrenching cautionary tale.

Karen and Martha run a private girls’ school in a converted farmhouse in New England. When a young student spreads a fabricated story, the consequences are devastating. In a storm of gossip and prejudice, the teachers are forced to confront not only their community’s reaction to slander, but also the truth within themselves.
