The Exquisite Hour
Playwright: Stewart Lemoine
The Exquisite Hour, presented by Stage North Theatre Society, features Ted Sloan and Emry Mika in this magical interpretation of love, romance, intrigue and imagination. Billed by the Globe and Mail as a “sweet ode to those bygone days”, The Exquisite Hour is “romance in the age of the encyclopedia.” Set in 1962, the season is summer, the lemonade is flowing and the lovely Mrs. Darimont has boldly entered the backyard of the pleasant bachelor Zachary Teale to politely ask him for an hour of his time. Prepare to be enthralled for an hour by this real time performance that will surprise and delight!
Show times: Sat, Aug 9: 5 pm, Mon, Aug 11: 8 pm, Sat, Aug 16: 3 pm
