January 16 - 31, 2015
A serious and adult play about two women who run a school for girls. After a student starts a rumor about the 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. The gossip was pure invention, but it is too late. Irreparable damage has been done
