1/14 The Children’s Hour
This Tuesday, January 14th, we will be reading THE CHILDREN’S HOUR, a 1934 play written by Lillian Hellman.
THE CHILDREN’S HOUR 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.
