Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes is the final addition to the Goodman Theatre's upcoming 90th Anniversary “Season to Celebrate.”



Directed by artistic associate Henry Wishcamper, the 1939 classic American Southern drama will be presented May 2-June 7, 2015. Casting will be announced at a later date.

“I am incredibly excited to direct Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes, one of the greatest American plays of the twentieth century, on the Goodman's Albert stage next year. Hellman's caustic portrait of American economics and culture remains extremely vivid and timely today,” said Wishcamper in a statement. “The Little Foxes is filled with terrific roles for actors, making the production a strong choice for Chicago’s brilliant local talent. I can't wait to start putting together the cast for this classic show.”

In Hellman’s turn-of-the century study of family greed, press notes state, "Ben and Oscar Hubbard stand to earn millions funding an industrialized cotton mill, and seek help with the initial investment from their sister Regina. The refusal of Regina’s dying husband to finance their scheme sets off an explosive series of betrayals, shattering the Hubbard clan’s genteel façade and exposing their ruthless pursuit of wealth."

Subscriptions start at $90 in honor of the anniversary season; call (312) 443-3800 or visit GoodmanTheatre.org. Individual tickets go on sale beginning in August.
