On Book! Lives destroyed by lies
Lillian’s Hellman’s 1934 drama, “The Children's Hour,” is featured in the next On Book! Readers Theatre production, Monday and Tuesday, April 14-15, at San Juan Community Theatre.
The play, set in an all-girls boarding school run by two women, unfolds as an angry student runs away and, to avoid being sent back, tells her grandmother that the two headmistresses are lovers. The accusation ends up destroying the women’s careers, relationships and lives.
Directed by SJCT’s Amanda Smith, the production features 15 islanders in acting roles. Admission is free; doors open at 7 p.m., with festival seating. Info, 378-3211, www.sjctheatre.org.
