Ian Rickson’s production of Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour is now taking bookings at the Comedy Theatre until 30 April (and not 2 April as previously announced).  The Children’s Hour first preview on 22 January and press night on 9 February 2011 remain as originally published.  

THE CHILDREN'S HOUR EXTENDS BOOKING PERIOD

When a schoolgirl's whisper spreads, it triggers a chain of events with extraordinary consequences.  Karen Wright and Martha Dobie run a girls’ boarding school in 1930s New England, where they become entangled in a devastating story of deceit, shame and courage. Banned in London and several cities across America, The Children's Hour received its world premiere on Broadway in 1934.  Generations on, its potent exploration of a culture of fear remains startlingly relevant.

The cast comprises Lisa Backwell (Evelyn Munn), Isabella Brazier-Jones (Helen Burton), Ellen Burstyn (Mrs Amelia Tilford), Poppy Carter (Janet), Marama Corlett (Lois Fisher), Nancy Crane (Agatha), Amy Dawson (Rosalie Wells), Isabel Ellison (Catherine), Bryony Hannah (Mary Tilford), Carol Kane (Mrs Lily Mortar), Keira Knightley (Karen Wright), Tobias Menzies (Doctor Joseph Cardin), Elizabeth Moss (Martha Dobie), Nathan Nolan (Grocery Boy) and Eve Ponsonby (Peggy Rogers).

The Children’s Hour
is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions & Scott Landis.
