Dunstable Rep - The Children's Hour (Preview)

When an obnoxious child points an accusing finger at two female teachers she sets off a chain of events that would task even her fertile imagination. True or false, the whiff of lesbianism is writ large in Lillian Hellman’s famous The Children’s Hour. The Rep are on top form with this absorbing piece and director Lucy O’Hare pulls out a string of first rate performances from her cast. Kim Albone and Annalise Carter-Brown turn in riveting portrayals as women forced to face unwelcome truths as the loathsome twelve year old Mary Tilford (A magnificent Victoria Moyle) spreads her poison. This is a must see gripping production littered with class. I shall give it at least four stars and a willing hand around the child’s throat. Roy Hall
