The Children’s Hour

Audiences held their breath for two solid hours last week as they witnessed tragedy unfold at the Wright-Dobie School, in Moving P.arts Collective's production of The Children's Hour by Lillian Hellman.

A cast of 16 students and a crew of six presented this gripping tale, which explores what happens when lies are told behind closed doors. The adults in the cast came from Years 10 and 12, while students from Years Seven to Nine played the school girls who set the plot in motion.

One audience member said, "It amazes me that I know that the place to go for good theatre in Jakarta is the School". Another commented, "It was like being in a professional London studio theatre."
