The Children's Hour

By Lillian Hellman

Directed by Adrienne Mackey

Lillian Hellman’s renowned play, set in an all-girls boarding school in the 1930s, returns to Philadelphia to launch the season. When one of the wealthy girls does not get her way, she destroys the lives of the headmistresses by accusing them of a secret love. This powerful tragedy that confronts the dangers of sexual prejudice, shockingly, still resonates today. Guest director Adrienne Mackey, of Swim Pony Performing Arts, brings this classic to an exciting new life for EgoPo.
