Director Ian Rickson discusses Lillian Hellman

17th February 2011



The director talks to Carole Woddis about his hit West End production of Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour (Comedy Theatre), which stars Keira Knightley and Elisabeth Moss in a play that was scandalous on its first outing in 1934, and continues to be relevant. Recorded at Graeae.

I constructed a prologue in order to help the audience to feel its way into the sensibility of an outcast.
