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.

WARREN: (M) 50s, a washed up television reporter who feels the current management is not recognizing his talent.
PAM: (F) 20s-30s, news producer, feels she has earned her current position at the tv station.
GORDON (M) 30s-40s, film producer, is desperate for a hit and will do whatever it takes
FRANCINE: (F) 30s-40s, film producer that works with Gordon, more level headed
BOBBY: (M) 40s-50s, film director, alcoholic and desperate to show he's still got it
MARK: (M) 40s-50s, a slimy agent who is full of himself
ELLIE: (F) 40s-50s, wife of Mark, full of repressed anger
RICHARD: (M) 20s-30s, an up and coming lawyer, clean cut and confident
RHONDA (F) 50s-50s, overbearing and talkative, mother of Richard and Neil, wife of Lloyd
LLOYD (M) 50s-60s, quiet and nice, but kind of enjoys the attention his overbearing wife gives him so plays it up
STAN (M) 20s-30s, owner of a racetrack, confident and a take charge kind of guy
ARTIE (M) 20s-30s, a racetrack employee but clearly not qualified as he is not a small man, sometimes a little dumb
NEIL (M) 20s-30s, the second son of Rhonda and Lloyd, nervous and awkward, spends the show on a ledge
SHARON (F) 30s-40s, the hard up psychiatrist who is barely holding it together with all the crazy
MAN (M) 30s-40s, the week at a glance salesman, comes across as an infomercial host with his energy
