7:00pm Curtain

When Jeff, a luckless young security guard, is drawn into a local murder investigation, loyalties are strained to the breaking point. As Jeff’s tightly wound supervisor is called to bear witness against his troubled brother, and an attractive rookie cop finds she must stand up to her seasoned partner, truth becomes elusive and justice proves costly.

“A masterpiece. The best drama, the best comedy and
the best romance of the year, all rolled into one.”

 Time Out

"Kenneth Lonergan’s work has always intrigued me. He is a consummate screen writer and a wonderful playwright. His recent film “Manchester by the Sea” reminded me that I should reacquaint myself with his plays."
- Annie Keefe, WCP Associate Artist & Script in Hand Series Curator

7:00pm Curtain

Oliver and Carrie discover that their spouses are having an affair. They counter by inventing an affair of their own. He, ironically, is a marriage counsellor and a bit of a stick while his wife is a real go-getter who easily juggles husband and lover. Carrie is a kook, married to a very rich man. Hilarity ensues.

“Civilized, charming, stylish... very warm and most amusing.
Delicately interweaves laughter and romance.”

 The New York Times

"I was remembering what fun we had with our Script in Hand reading of Jean Kerr’s MARY, MARY a couple of years ago and went searching for other plays by Ms. Kerr. LUNCH HOUR has a similar warmth and charm, and I’m sure our audience will love it."
- Annie Keefe, WCP Associate Artist & Script in Hand Series Curator
