The Vertical Hour
PHILADELPHIA PREMIERE
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.

Running Time: Approximately 2 hours, including one brief intermission (subject to change during previews)

Venue Information: The Vertical Hour will be performed at the Lantern's resident home at St. Stephen's Theater, 923 Ludlow Street in Center City Philadelphia.
