Rowan's Theatre Department is staging a new production of THE CHILDREN'S HOUR by Lillian Helman. Hellman, an outspoken political activist and women's rights advocate wrote this play in the 1930s to challenge social norms of the day. The story follows a young girls school where two students accuse two teachers of being in a homosexual relationship. Hellman also revived the play 20 years later to a record-breaking and audience-challenging run of Broadway.

The production is directed by Dr. Elisabeth Hostetter* and features professional actress Allison Green. Tickets are $10 for Adults and $5 for Students/Seniors. Free admission is granted to all Rowan students with identification.
