Description

West Valley College Theatre's Production of "The Children's Hour" opens on Oct. 20 at the Studio Stage.

Synopsis: Set in a fictional New England town in the 1930s, The Children's Hour by Lillian Hellman tells the story of two women who are accused of homosexual activity by one of their students, Mary Tilford. The outraged community quickly withdraws all of their students, causing a witch-hunt that ultimately forces the school to close. Ultimately, the play confronts a tsunami force of deceitful lies which destroy the lives of all those concerned. At its premiere, The Children's Hour was a controversial piece that caused the author to be blacklisted from Hollywood. Today, it is "a haunting reminder of the horrors of intolerance . . . and the power of a lie" (Hellman).

Tickets can be purchased at the door: $12 General Admission / $10 Students & Seniors
