BWW Review: Intiman's THE CHILDREN'S HOUR Builds Beautifully
by Jay Irwin - Sep 13, 2015

The tragic circumstances and attitudes of Lillian Hellman's "The Children's Hour" may still have some resonance in today's more accepting world but the power and stakes of the piece when set in the unforgiving 1930's feels so much greater than the more progressive 1980's as the current production from The Intiman Theatre Festival updates it to. But even with the change in era and place the piece still hits hard especially in the more than capable hands of director Sheila Daniels. (more...)

BWW Reviews: THE CHILDREN'S HOUR Still Packs a Punch at Arouet
by Jay Irwin - May 18, 2015

You might not think that a play from the 1930's would be so resonant today. But in our world where it's so easy to slander someone and spread malicious rumors at the click of a mouse, a play like "The Children's Hour", currently playing from Arouet, feels like an ominous precursor of things to come. And while the attitudes about the situations may have changed, the hurtful nature of gossip remains the same and Arouet's production deftly examines what that kind of hurt can do. (more...)

Langley High School Theatre Department to Present THE CHILDREN'S HOUR, 4/3-5
by BWW News Desk - Mar 30, 2014

The award-winning Langley High School theatre department will present its spring production, Lillian Hellman's 1934 play, The Children's Hour. Based on a true story and set in a private girls' boarding school in New England, The Children's Hour chronicles the lives of the school's two young, ambitious owners, Karen Wright and Martha Dobie. When their disciplinary actions against troublesome student, Mary Tilford, upset her, the bratty child runs away to her influential grandmother. Constructing a lie that Karen and Martha were seen having an affair, Mary's action soon becomes more than just a simple fib, causing parents to withdraw their children from the school and the owners to question what went wrong as the women's lives are shattered.

Pandora Productions to Present Lillian Hellman's THE CHILDREN'S HOUR
by BWW News Desk - Mar 2, 2016

Pandora Productions continues the 2015-2016 season with Lillian Hellman's The Children's Hour. A play that was too scandalous to be considered for a Pulitzer in 1934 due to its lesbian theme. Ms. Hellman, known as much for her politics as for her playwrighting, penned this, her first play, at the tender age of 29. She would become one of the most famous female playwrights of the century. The play explores issues of homosexual persecution in that time period. Pandora is proud to bring this play to life during Women's History month. (more...)

Photo Blast from the Past: Lillian Hellman
by Walter McBride - Dec 30, 2013

Today, we're featuring Lillian Hellman, circa 1984. Hellman was an American author of plays, screenplays, and memoirs and throughout her life, was linked with many left-wing political causes. Hellman's drama, The Children's Hour, premiered on Broadway on November 24, 1934, and ran for 691 performances. It depicts a false accusation of lesbianism by a schoolgirl against two of her teachers. In December 1936, her play Days to Come closed its Broadway run after just seven performances. In it, she portrayed a labor dispute in a small Ohio town during which the characters try to balance the competing claims of owners and workers, both represented as valid. Her play The Little Foxes opened on Broadway on February 13, 1939, and ran for 410 performances. Her play Watch on the Rhine opened on Broadway on April 1, 1941, and ran for 378 performances. It won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award. In April 1944, Hellman's The Searching Wind opened on Broadway. Her third World War II project, it tells the story of an ambassador whose indecisive relations with his wife and mistress mirror the vacillation and appeasement of his professional life. (more...)
