The Vertical Hour
By David Hare
Directed by Kathryn MacMillan
January 9 - February 16, 2020
A brilliant and charismatic American war correspondent-turned-professor is set to marry into an accomplished British family. But is she too much of a renegade to fit in? Renowned British playwright David Hare lays bare the shifting alliances of a family trying to come together and the past secrets that may keep them apart.
"If you want a definition of good drama, this is it. A rich, intellectually gripping play." –The Guardian
