Synopsis: What do an overweight jockey, a desperate movie producer, a gay entertainment lawyer, a philandering agent and a Week-at-a-Glance salesman have in common? Ordinarily not a whole lot, but then again, Norm Foster's Office Hours is no ordinary play. Foster is one of Canada's most popular playwrights and Office Hours is one of his funniest plays. Filed with snappy dialogue, witty repartee, hilarious predicaments and lots and lots of laughs.
