The Public Theater celebrated the opening of Julia Cho’s Office Hour November 8, a taut new drama that follows a meeting between a schoolteacher and a troubled teen. Among other things, the play examines the ever-growing issue of gun violence in the U.S. and its dangerous impact.
Neel Keller directs the Off-Broadway production, scheduled to play through December 10.
Office Hour began performances October 17 with a cast led by Sue Jean Kim and Ki Hong Lee. Greg Keller and Adeola Role complete the cast.
“Determined to know whether he’s a real threat, Gina compels Dennis to attend her office hours. But as the clock ticks down, Gina realizes that ’good’ versus ’bad’ is nothing more than a convenient illusion, and that the isolated young student in her office has learned one thing above all else: that for the powerless, the ability to terrify others is powerful indeed,” read production notes.
