How can you tell when you’re having the best hour of your life? That’s the question Edmonton playwright Stewart Lemoine asks in The Exquisite Hour.

Join Lunchbox Theatre for this warm, romantic, and beautiful hit show featuring Calgary’s own Barbara Gates Wilson and Curt Mckinstry.

On a summer afternoon in 1962, Mrs. Darimont boldly penetrates the pleasant backyard of bachelor Zachary Teale to politely ask him for an hour of his time. The question she wants to ask does not have a simple answer—are you satisfied with what you know—and their conversation reveals a blossoming relationship, the pursuit of knowledge, and the discovery of hope.

The Exquisite Hour runs February 13 to March 4, 2017 at Lunchbox Theatre (160, 115 9th Ave. SE).
