The Public Theater celebrates the opening of Julia Cho’s Office Hour November 8, a taut new drama about a schoolteacher and a troubled teen who are dangerously at odds. Neel Keller directs the Off-Broadway production, scheduled to play through December 10.
Office Hour began performances October 17. The cast is led by Sue Jean Kim and Ki Hong Lee, who are joined by Greg Keller and Adeola Role.
“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.
Office Hour features scenic design by Takeshi Kata, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Christopher Akerlind, and original music and sound design by Bray Poor.
Tickets can be purchased by calling (212) 967-7555, visiting PublicTheater.org, or in person at the Taub Box Office at The Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street.
