The story of two women whose lives are ruined by the evil and vindictive accusations of one of their students.
by Lillian Hellman
Directed by Rebecca Bradshaw
One of the great successes of this distinguished writer. A serious and adult play about two women who run a school for girls. After a malicious youngster starts a rumor about the two women, the rumor soon turns to scandal. As the young girl comes to understand the power she wields, she sticks by her story, which precipitates tragedy for the women. It is later discovered that the gossip was pure invention, but it is too late. Irreparable damage has been done.
