The Little Foxes by Lillian Hellman

The play is a riveting Southern Gothic tale that delves into the greed and deceit within the Hubbard family in the Deep South at the turn of the 20th century. As the family members scheme and manipulate each other to gain control of a lucrative cotton mill venture, the narrative exposes the moral decay festering beneath their quest for wealth. Central to the story is a strong-willed and manipulative matriarch who will stop at nothing to secure her financial future, even at the expense of her own family's happiness and well-being. The play's exploration of themes such as ambition, betrayal, and the corrosive effects of greed makes it a powerful and enduring piece of American drama.
