Chino Community Theatre

upcoming production

directed by Toni Lynd

How much damage can one lie cause? That question is the crux of Lillian Hellman’s classic drama, which is set in a 1930’s boarding school but still feels especially timely in the 21st century. 

The story concerns an attempt by Mary Tilford, a student at a New England boarding school, to explain to her rich, indulgent grandmother why she has run away from school. Angry over her mild altercation with the two women who own and run the school, Mary says that she knows the women to be lesbians, and she successfully blackmails another student into corroborating her accusation. 

The Children’s Hour deals with the serious ramifications of Mary’s accusation, leading to a heartbreaking confession and a tragic finale, and cements Hellman’s reputation as one of the great American dramatists. (adult subject matter)
