This is a courtroom drama for eight women and four men. A young woman has accused a United States senator of sexual assault. The jury finds itself sharply divided. As they debate the evidence, flashbacks to the courtroom show how each juror has interpreted the testimony differently. Flashbacks to the events as they happened show that the witnesses in the trial interpret what happened differently. The truth, it seems, is lost in shadows. Shadow Hour is a contemporary story that gives each cast member the opportunity to play two parts. Many roles are ideal for older actresses.

"Provocative and suspenseful." - LA Weekly

"Crackling with genuine sexual energy." - Los Angeles Times

Shadow Hour was first presented by The All Roses Company at the Stella Adler Theatre in Los Angeles, California, in 1998.
