Lillian Hellman's "The Little Foxes" will open Margetts season at BYU Nov. 1

The Brigham Young University Department of Theatre and Media Arts will present “The Little Foxes” by American playwright Lillian Hellman in the Margetts Theatre Nov. 1-18 at 7:30 p.m.

A matinee performance will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11. There will be no performances Sundays or Mondays.

Tickets are $14 or $9 weeknights and $10 weekends with student ID. For selected performances, all seats will be $7. Tickets may be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, by calling (801) 422-7664 or by visiting performances.byu.edu.

The Hubbards, a family living in the post-Civil War South, are willing to cheat even those they hold most dear. In a world where nothing is more important than money and power, the characters and what they become will leave the audience wondering if it is possible to stop corruption from affecting future generations.

“Theater imitates life, and life isn’t easy to understand,” said director Laurie Harrop-Purser. “We rarely understand ourselves, let alone those people around us at a given moment, and we are ever changing. I want this play to reflect that. I want the knowledge that we are ever changing to remind us that we can change.”

The cast will include Katie Rockwood as Regina Giddens along with Slate Holmgren and Phillip Clayton as Regina’s brothers Oscar and Leo Hubbard. Ryan Simmons is Horace Giddens. Laura Sorensen will play Birdie Hubbard and Moronai Kanekoa will take the role of Benjamin Hubbard.

Assisting Harrop-Purser will be artistic director Rodger Sorensen, dramaturg Lauren Noll, set designer Jessika Watson, makeup designer Chelsea Toler, lighting designer Matthew Georgeson, sound designer Daren Smith and production manager Russell D. Richins.
