Question: Who is Karen Wright? What is she like?
Hannah Linson: Karen Wright is trying to get her boarding school up and running with her best friend, Martha Dobie. Karen is very sweet and the students love her. Karen is engaged to Dr. Joseph Cardin.
Q: What will an audience take away from The Children's Hour?
H.L.: I hope they will take away the effects that thoughtless actions can have.
Q: Are there any situations in which lying is justified?
H.L.: There is never a time when a lie is necessarily a good thing. You may tell your friend, "Oh, you look better" when she's sick. But I don't think there is an appropriate time for a lie.
