Running time: 2:45
by Clyde Fitch
September 8 - October 8, 2017
Upon the death of its patriarch and facing financial ruin, the Hunter family struggles to maintain their social and economic standing. Funds are stolen for dangerous financial schemes, dubious marriages are contemplated, and summer dresses are sold on the cheap.
First performed in 1901, Clyde Fitch’s The Climbers is still a timely tale of grasping, social climbing at all costs.
