Event Notes


“Are you satisfied with what you know?” Stewart Lemoine’s THE EXQUISITE HOUR asks that very question. On a beautiful summer’s day, a very ordinary and satisfied fellow blissfully putters away in his back yard, that is until his life is upended by a not so ordinary encyclopedia sales person. In one hour, life takes a rather unexpected turn. An ordinary, contented man’s life is changed in one extraordinary, yet whimsical hour. It’s summer. Life is comfy and predictable for Zachary Teale on a lazy, hazy summer's day.Then the lemonade takes a twist with the arrival of a Mrs. Darimont. Never has one hour changed the course of one man’s life, as the Exquisite Hour does. Gravenhurst’s own Richard Peters and Jane Miller take you on a playful, imaginative journey when two rather peculiar people cross paths over, of all things, an Encyclopedia. Never has the letter H had more possibilities and laughter than in Stewart Lemoine’s The Exquisite HOUR. Directed by Dave Campbell.
