About This Show

Peter Handke’s The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other is a challenging play that reexamines the crisis of language, the joy of movement, the necessity of recognition, and the involvement humans invest in one another. Although the play has over two hundred transient characters, one single character remains on stage throughout the entire action: the town square. It is the perfect setting for complete strangers who meet but do not always greet, who move toward and away from each other, sometimes in silence. Do they have a story? What provokes people into making connections with some, and none with others?
