The Children's Hour in London, starring Karen Wright (Keira Knightley) and Martha Dobie (Elisabeth Moss) is a classic drama. Tickets for The Children's Hour can be bought here!

The Children's Hour is Lillian Hellman's visionary masterpiece about the power of a lie. When a schoolgirl's whisper spreads it triggers a chain of events with extraordinary consequences. Karen Wright (Keira Knightley) and Martha Dobie (Elisabeth Moss) run a girls' boarding school in 1930's New England, where they become entangled in a devastating story of deceit, shame and courage.

Banned in London and several cities across America, The Children's Hour received its world premiere on Broadway in 1934.

Keira Knightley, nominee for Best Actress 2010 Evening Standard Awards for The Misanthrope, returns to the London stage alongside Elisabeth Moss, Emmy Award nominee for TV's critically acclaimed Mad Men in her West End debut.
