Children's Hour

by N. Jacobsen | Monday, Sep 17, 2018

FAU’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents Lillian Hellman’s “The Children’s Hour” from Friday, Sept. 28 through Sunday, Oct. 7 in Studio One, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. Shows are at 2 and 7 p.m. and tickets can be purchased for $22 at or by calling 561-297-6124.

Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and the crowning achievement of Hellman’s career, this beautiful classic American play explores the relationship of two women who find themselves accused of having a lesbian relationship with devastating repercussions. While written in the 1930s, “The Children’s Hour” remains a fresh and relevant exploration of love, honesty, and the destructive nature of gossip and intolerance. The play is directed by Kathryn
Johnston, professor of theater at FAU.
