ABOUT THE SHOW: "Sticks and Stones can Break Your Bones, but Lies Can Ruin a Lifetime.â€Ě One of the great successes of this distinguished writer. A serious and adult play about two women who run a school for girls. After a malicious youngster starts a rumor about the two women, the rumor soon turns to scandal. As the young girl comes to understand the power she wields, she sticks by her story, which precipitates tragedy for the women. It is later discovered that the gossip was pure invention, but it is too late. Irreparable damage has been done.
Parental Advisory: This production contains mature themes including: Discussion of bullying, homosexuality and suicide. Parental Discretion Is strongly suggested.
