The Children’s Hour runs in McLean High School’s Burke Theatre Feb. 16 through 19.
In 1934, playwright Lillian Hellman did the unthinkable — she revealed the bitter truth. Through her beautifully written play The Children’s Hour, Hellman challenged not only the mid twentieth century stigma against homosexuality, but also publicized a powerful message about the danger of gossip and lies. McLean High School’s theatre department — TheatreMcLean — dives into the transcendent world of The Children’s Hour as its second production of the 2016-2017 season.
