    great play to instill in students the importance of the things we say and how our words have the power to build up or tear down someone s life Perfect piece for most high schools, though for modern students it could be a little wordy and boring Best for production, not as a read a long in class.

    Great for what it is The 30s version is fantastic though, and the reprint in her collected works published in the 70s was the last say she had in the script.

    My middle school students love acting out key scenes for this script in class Not for profit, of course.

    Wow Amazing story about the power of lies and how we are willing to believe without question Applies today with just as much force Adapted into two amazing movies These Three and The Children s Hour.

    Bought this for my daughter, a theatre student I watched the movie Shirley McLaine and Audrey Hepburn and loved the story My daughter wasn t familiar with the play and is really enjoying the twists and turns, and perspective of this story and the era it was written presented.
