From “To Kill a Mockingbird”, now playing at Slidell Little Theatre.
The Children’s Hour, a 1934 stage play written by Lillian Hellman, is a drama set in an all-girls boarding school run by two women, Karen Wright and Martha Dobie. An angry student, Mary Tilford, runs away from the school and to avoid being sent back she tells her grandmother that the two headmistresses are having a lesbian affair. The accusation proceeds to destroy the women’s careers, relationships and lives.
On stage at Slidell Little Theatre, March 5-21.
