Lillian Hellman’s riveting drama captures the story of a Southern family whose selfish pursuit of the American Dream ends up destroying them and those they love. Three siblings – the manipulative, scheming Regina, the cruel and arrogant Oscar, and the possessive Benjamin – have decided to partner together to increase their already substantial, ill-gotten wealth. There is only one problem: Regina’s terminally ill husband, Horace, is refusing to give them the $75,000 they need. And so begins a vicious circle of lying scheming, cruelty, and finally, murder. In the end, blood and money mix, with money coming out on top, leaving a broken family behind.
