The acting was superb and the play rose in tension, just as Lillian Hellman intended. We were pleased to attend such a fine performance.

This is a fabulous production of a classic play with a timely subject. Intimate space and a beautiful set. Top notch actors, especially Linda Reiter who, as always, is astonishing on stage. Don't miss it!

Description

The Little Foxes

By Lillian Hellman

While literary critics argue whether the popularity of Hellman’s play is due to its value as an allegory or its appeal as a satire, The Little Foxes maintains an enduring relevance, dramatizing the predatory capitalism that Hellman felt threatens the American ethic. Drawing inspiration from her own New Orleans family, Hellman tells the story of the Hubbard siblings and their insatiable greed. Caught in a cycle of revenge as ripe and bloodthirsty as any classic Greek tragedy, they are driven to acquire ever more wealth. They will steal, plot, and sacrifice all family ties as they attempt to invest in one of the first cotton mills to industrialize the New South.
