On January 18th Tides Theatre Company will open their new home with a bold interpretation of Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes. Director Jennifer Welch takes a modern eye to the Hubbard Family and their insatiable hunger for wealth and dominance.
Lillian Hellman, one of the American theatre's most provocative and masterful playwrights, 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. This unforgettable classic tells the story of 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.
