THE ZERO HOUR
Written by Madeleine George
Directed by: Robyne Parrish
With: Erika Cuenca*, Daina Michelle Griffith*, John Steffenauer*.

Rebecca and her chronically unemployed girlfriend, O, have created a happy nest in their run-down walk-up in Queens, but the more O pushes Rebecca to stop hiding their relationship, the more Rebecca’s work life—writing a textbook for seventh graders about the Holocaust— begins to bleed into her personal life: She starts meeting World War II Nazis on the 7 train, passing as hipster professionals in New York City but eager to come out about who they really are. O is also sparring with convincingly real visions: her long estranged—and recently dead?—mother keeps showing up to argue with her about her choices. This almost-love story explores the relationship between honesty and cruelty: How do you tell the truth about yourself when that truth might devastate the people you love?
