Overview

One of the great successes of this distinguished writer. A serious adult play about two women who run a school for girls. A malicious youngster, trying to protect herself, starts an entirely unfounded rumor about the two women. When the young girl sees the rumor turn to scandal, she understands the power she wields and sticks by her story, which eventually precipitates tragedy for the women. Later it is discovered that the gossip was pure invention, but by that time, irreparable damage has been done.

The play is prefaced by an interview with the author by Harry Gilroy of the New York Times
