Marama Corlett in The Children’s Hour
What a Witch’s cast Marama Corlett is playing in Lillian Hellman’s “The Children’s Hour”, starring Keira Knightley and Elisabeth Moss, which will begin previews on January 22 at the West End’s Comedy Theatre. Ian Rickson will direct the production, which has extended its booking period through April 30, rather than the previously announced April 2.
Hellman’s play focuses on the events that transpire after a troubled teenager starts to spin a web of deceit about two teachers at an all-girls boarding school.
In The Children’s Hour, Marama Corlett plays Lois Fisher. She doesn’t get things as quickly as all the other girls and struggles a lot with Latin.’ To Marama, the play is about a lie that expresses issues of love and fear, on many different levels. One of the cool things about the play is that the majority of characters are female. It is usually the other way round.’
