Lillian Hellman’s classic drama captures the riveting story of how a family’s vicious pursuit of financial success destroys the American Dream. In the post-Civil War South, Regina Giddens and her scheming brothers, Oscar and Ben, want to partner on a business deal to exploit the poor and increase their already substantial wealth. There is only one problem: Regina’s husband, Horace, refuses to give them the funds they need — setting in motion a vicious game of duplicitous dealings that ultimately leads to death. A timely story about corrosion of the soul and corruption of the heart.

“A brilliant, blistering indictment of rapacious southern family.”   – Variety

Trigger warnings: strong racial language, domestic violence, alcoholism, death.

Please be aware that Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes reflects the social and racial attitudes of the American South at the turn of the 20th century; as such, it contains language and references that are harsh reminders of those attitudes and that period in our history. We feel that those references are essential elements in the themes of the play and have been retained from Hellman’s original text.


The play’s focus is Regina Hubbard Giddens, who struggles for wealth and freedom within the confines of 1900 Southern society, where men are the sole inheritors, and make all economic decisions. While her two avaricious brothers Benjamin and Oscar have wielded the family inheritance into two independently substantial fortunes, she’s had to rely upon her manipulation of her cautious, browbeaten husband, Horace. His absence due to illness has allowed Ragina to take charge of the household and finances, until a new business deal organised by Regina and her brothers bring Horace home.

Oscar, Benjamin, and Regina intend to broker a deal with a businessman from Chicago, in order to build a cotton mill. However, they have heard nothing from Horace agreeing to invest he and Regina’s third. Regina sends her daughter Alexandra to fetch Horace from Baltimore. Oscar initially proposes marriage between his son Leo and Regina’s daughter Alexandra—first cousins—as a means of getting Horace’s money, but Horace and Alexandra are repulsed by the suggestion. Horace refuses when Regina asks him outright for the money, so Leo, a bank teller, is pressured into stealing Horace’s railroad bonds from the bank’s safe deposit box.

Horace, after discovering this, tells Regina he is going to change his will in favor of their daughter, and also will claim he gave Leo the bonds as a loan, thereby cutting Regina out of the deal completely. When he has a heart attack during this fight, she makes no effort to help him. He dies within hours, without anyone knowing his plan and before changing his will. This leaves Regina free to blackmail her brothers by threatening to report Leo’s theft unless they give her 75% ownership in the cotton mill (it is, in Regina’s mind, a fair exchange for the stolen bonds). Oscar and Ben call into question the circumstances of Horace’s death, once again gaining power over Regina, and she ultimately pays for her evil deeds is the loss of her daughter Alexandra’s love and respect.

Press & Reviews


“Edmiston cast Anne Gottlieb, who has played such equally strong female roles as Lady Macbeth and Cleopatra and won several Elliot Norton Awards. ‘I’ve directed her six times before, and I had an idea that she would bring something new and multi-dimensional,’ he said. ‘For many years I’ve been imaging her in this part.'”

Theater: Lillian Hellman’s classic ‘Little Foxes’ is a tale of greed and deception | Wicked Local

“Astrid Buckley’s costumes are Southern belles at their best; Karen Perlow’s lighting works in concert with Howland’s chandeliers to cast the appropriate shade during the dramatic moments and Dewey Dellay’s moody incidental music foretells the dramatic events that will shatter the family as the mood of the piece grows ever darker.”

‘The Little Foxes’: Southern Dysfunction at it’s Best | On Boston Stages

“Edmiston sticks to a straightforward approach at Lyric Stage, and that turns out to be more than enough for “The Little Foxes.’’ The production’s handsomely appointed set, complete with curved staircase and glittering chandeliers, is by Janie E. Howland. Gail Astrid Buckley designed the elegant costumes, including a stole worn by Gottlieb’s Regina that gives literal form to the play’s title — and that underscores the near-feral behavior she and her brothers have engaged in.”

Ruthless power games in Lyric Stage’s ‘The Little Foxes’ | The Boston Globe

“The production is set in an astoundingly beautiful design by four time IRNE and four time Elliot Norton award-winner Janie E. Howland**. The cast have been clothed in exquisite period costumes by IRNE award-winner Costume Designer Gail Astrid Buckley. Overhead, the Lighting design by 3-time IRNE award-winner, Karen Perlow**further adds ambiance to the setting. Additionally, cleverly creative and mysterious,  original music by IRNE and Elliot Norton award-winner for Music and Sound Design by Dewey Dellay, provides excellent musical intro and transitions throughout the play. ”



“What Scott Edmiston does so well here is to serve Hellman’s script with bracing naturalism, putting it front-and-center in such a seductive way. The vipers battle it out on the Lyric stage and it’s thrilling to watch.”

“Run. Take the T. Drive. Call a transportation service. However you get there, don’t miss Lyric Stage Company of Greater Boston’s superb pro­duction of Lillian Hellman’s classic play, “The Little Fox­es”.  Theater at its best.”



Without exception, the characters are three-dimensional, fully realized, and thoroughly alive, compelling the audience to engage with them on an intensely emotional level.

“Under the debasing spell of cash,” says Jared, “this is the American family scraped bare and raw in a production that’s perfectly unrelenting in its intensity. It’s our fortune that director Scott Edmiston has revived this scorching drama.”
