Is a lie always a lie? Can it be a defense against hurting another person? Can it be a means to ensure the greater good? Married couple, Kate and Ben, she a workaholic ethics professor and he an unemployed programmer, have invented the perfect game for getting to the truth and nothing but the truth. “Secret hour,” is their time to share only the truth and no lies. When an automobile accident unexpectedly reveals Kate’s deepest and darkest secret, her marriage spins out of control. Jenny Stafford’s play, winner of the 2021 Next Act New Play Summit, is a delicious adult puzzle about sex, lies and the games we play to keep life moving along on cruise control and what happens when the forces of the universe– or at least human nature– make sure we take the wheel and keep our eyes on the very bumpy road ahead!
