The Bad Hour, a modern-day Western, is a fictionalized version of a hostile takeover of a bird sanctuary in the badlands of Oregon. Two dangerous outlaws, and three lonesome perplexed bystanders trapped in the crosshairs, choose sides in a last-stand between violence and hope. Darkly funny, The Bad Hour, written by Karen Polinsky and directed by Nina Monique Kelly of Whisper Skin Theatre, explores the dangerous ambiguities and unbreachable divisions in our current political climate.
