This 1934 American play by Lillian Hellman is set in an all-girls boarding school run by two women. An angry student runs away from the school and to avoid being sent back she tells her grandmother that the two headmistresses are having a lesbian affair.
The play is based on a true incident that took place in 1810 at a school in Edinburgh, Scotland.
