Ian Rickson directs an outstanding ensemble in Lillian Hellman's visionary masterpiece The Children's Hour.

Keira Knightley returns to the London stage alongside Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) in her West End debut. They are joined by Ellen Burstyn, 6 time Oscar nominee and winner for Best Actress (Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore), with stage and screen star Carol Kane (Annie Hall).

When a schoolgirl's whisper spreads it triggers a chain of events with extraordinary consequences. At a boarding school in 1930's New England two women become entangled in a devastating story of deceit, shame and courage. Generations on, this potent exploration of a culture of fear remains startlingly relevant. Unmissable.
