The Violet Hour: Time Travel Gives Acclaimed Comedy a Surreal Twist
If you could glimpse into the future, would that simplify your time in the present, or make it altogether unbearable? This is one of the brain-busting questions explored in Richard Greenberg's gloriously unpredictably drama, The Violet Hour. In this sophisticated comedy, a young publisher in the year 1919 must choose between publishing his college chum's gigantic manuscript or the memoirs of his clandestine jazz-singer lover. Meanwhile, a mysterious machine in the back room starts spewing out pages of books not yet written. Stirring and articulate, The Violet Hour is one of the most acclaimed comedies from Greenberg, winner of the Tony and Drama Desk Awards (Take Me Out). Chad Oakley directs for OnStage Playhouse.
