“The Children’s Hour”
Dec. 7-9. Presented by the Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy. This 20th century drama by acclaimed playwright Lillian Hellman follows the undoing of two women running all-girls boarding school. One of the little girls decides to tell a lie about the headmistresses to her grandmother—the school’s primary benefactor. The grandmother dismisses the lie at first, until another little girl is blackmailed into vouching for it. The lie pulls an unfortunate string of events that unravels the lives of the two women until they are left with nothing. Showtime is Thursday-Saturday at 7 p.m. with a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m.
