Description

THE STORY: The play takes place in the 1880s. Marcus Hubbard, rich, despotic and despised, made a fortune during the Civil War by running the blockade - and worse. In his family life he is equally injurious: one son he bulldozes while the other he holds in contempt for his frailty. By Marcus's side stands his mentally deranged wife and, finally, Regina, the adored daughter - amoral, conniving, and beautiful as an evil flower. Marcus, it would seem, has been on the top of the heap long enough and someone must depose him. Turning the tables on a tyrant has always made for high drama, and when Hellman puts her brilliant talents to work on such a theme the result is a play of great theatrical intensity.

ANOTHER PART OF THE FOREST is not only heralded as one of the theater's most hard-hitting domestic dramas, but it is also re-garded as an important precursor to The Little Foxes, Lillian Hellman's most famous examination of a southern family's descent into wickedness and corruption.
