Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

Quotes & Highlights
“Searing…Packs a personal wallop.” —Variety
Playwright, activist, lover, blacklisted screenwriter—Lillian Hellman, with her rabble-rousing life and work, continues to exert a captivating hold on American culture. The Little Foxes reveals Hellman’s unrivaled ability to create some of the meatiest roles in the modern canon, including Regina Giddens, a character the _New York Times _called “that malignant Southern bitch-goddess.” When a prospective business deal promises to bring Regina and her wealthy brothers even more money, they each scramble to secure the spoils for themselves—by any means necessary. The Little Foxes is Hellman at the top of her dramatic form, handing down a juicy indictment of the oldest American family value of all: greed.
