AC Theatre to stage Lillian Hellman’s acclaimed drama ‘The Little Foxes’

The ruthless schemes of a dysfunctional family emboldened by greed are laid bare in Lillian Hellman’s acclaimed play “The Little Foxes,” which the Amarillo College Theatre Arts Program will present four times later this month.

AC students will perform The Little Foxes Feb. 22-25 at the Experimental Theatre on the Washington Street Campus. The three-act play will begin at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 22-24, and at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 25.

The play’s 10-member cast is under the direction of Ray Newburg, longtime program coordinator, who says Hellman’s searing tale of family betrayal that made its Broadway debut way back in 1939 has relevance yet today. “Good pieces of literature stand the test of time; they don’t show their age,” Newburg said. “This play contains certain universal aspects of human behavior, of family dysfunction and greed, that are very recognizable today.”
