Lillian Hellman

Published by Vintage Books

These six plays span nearly twenty years of theatre and display the range of Lillian Hellman's dramatic gifts

The Children's Hour (1934), her first play, was considered shocking at the time; it concerns the devastating effects of a child's malicious charge of lesbianism against two of her teachers

Days to Come (1936) is about the tragic consequences of strike-breaking in a small Midwestern community

The Little Foxes (1939) and Another Part of the Forest (1946) together constitute a chilling study of the financial and psychological conflicts within the Hubbards, a wealthy and rapacious Southern family

Watch on the Rhine (1941), the story of how fascism affects an American family and the refugees they harbor, won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award

The Autumn Garden (1951) is a poignant yet humorous drama set at a summer resort near New Orleans
