The Children's Hour
This is a serious and adult play about two women who run a school for girls. After a malicious youngster starts a rumour about the two women, the rumour soon turns into a scandal. As the young girl comes to understand the power she wields, she sticks by her story, which precipitates tragedy for the women. It is later discovered that the gossip was pure invention, but it is too late. Irreparable damage has been done.

Review: The Children's HourUser Review - Susan Bernhardt - Goodreads
A strong, intense, and sad play written eighty years ago depicting the evil consequences of a child's lie. A historical struggle of lesbianism in that era and perhaps even today. Well written and compelling. Read full review
