About This Show

Richard Greenberg’s The Violet Hour is an eccentric, funny play where fate, ambition and loyalty among friends collide. Just after World War I, fledgling book publisher John Pace Seavering tries to pick the first manuscript he will publish: a massive volume by his best friend or the autobiography of his lover. As a mysterious machine arrives and begins to predict unsettling futures for them all, John struggles with the effect his actions may have on the lives of those around him.

Previews are April 10 & 11 at 7:30pm, and opening night is Wednesday, April 12 at 7:30pm. There are additional industry shows on Mondays, April 17 and 24 at 7:30pm, and a special “Theatre Thursday” event on April 13, beginning at 5:30pm.
