THE BLUE HOUR
by Michele Vance Hehir
THE BLUE HOUR is the story of what goes on behind closed doors in a small Alberta town, Roseglen, in 1947. The pastor of the Last Hope Assembly and his relationship with a 15-year-old girl has consequences. It’s a beautifully drawn and raw play about turning the other cheek and turning a blind eye. Readers are Coralie Cairns, Oscar Derkx, Emma Houghton, Kristi Hansen, Jenny McKillop, Garett Ross and George Szilagyi. Stage directions are read by Reed McColm.

She is writing and producing a new play, Ruination: 3 Short Stories for this year’s Edmonton Fringe Festival at The Walterdale Theatre, starring Julie Golosky, Alyson Dicey and Marc Ludwig.
