The Little Foxes
COMING SOON. PREVIEWS OCT 18 Tickets www.antaeus.org
Hellman was one of the American theater’s most provocative and masterful playwrights, and her work continues to exert a captivating hold on American culture. The Little Foxes reveals Hellman’s unrivaled ability to create some of the meatiest roles in the modern canon. Set in the Deep South in 1900, this modern classic is a dark tale of greed, deceit and betrayal about the scheming Hubbards and their single-minded pursuit of wealth; in this family, the only thing that runs thicker than blood is cold, hard cash. Regina Hubbard Giddens (Puette) and her conniving brothers, Oscar (Nagle) and Ben (McShane), plan to get rich from a cotton mill, but first they must tap into the wealth of Regina’s sickly husband, Horace (DeMita). When Horace refuses to give them the money they need, a vicious circle of intrigue, lying and cruelty spirals out of control, tearing the family apart.
