If anyone is looking for a play to see this week, check out The Children’s Hour playing at the Bob Hope Theatre in Eltham.
Wednesday 8th – Saturday 11th March. The Bob Hope Actors’ Company presents The Children’s Hour – a play by Lillian Hellman, directed by Colin Hill. This fascinating and compelling piece of theatre tells the story of two women who run their own private school in America in the 1930s. They fall prey to the malicious scheming of one of their pupils who implies that they are involved in an inappropriate relationship. Despite the lack of truth in the allegations, irreparable damage is done to all concerned.
The play is based on an actual case and was made into a film released in the UK as The Loudest Whisper. Performances 7.45pm every evening. Tickets £12 – concessions available.
