Canada's most popular playwright, Norm Foster hilariously sends up the workplace in Office Hours. A jockey too heavy to ride, a desperate movie producer whose blockbuster idea sounds a lot like Tarzan, and a sexually frustrated therapist are just a few of the wacky characters that crop up on a Friday afternoon in six offices across the city. Through all their wheeling, dealing and all-too-familiar office politicking, these seemingly unrelated characters are tied together by the day planner, romance novel and mysterious author they have in common. Frequently compared to legendary playwright Neil Simon for his accessible humor and insight into everyday life, Foster creates his funniest play in Office Hours. Learn More

We really enjoyed the show which moved along at a good clip. The set was terrific and the characters very distinctive. The only criticism is that it was hard to see because the seats are not offset from one row to the next and the floor doesn't gain enough elevation.

A group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house. Others are a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis.
