Capital Repertory Theatre Presents the World Premiere of “Secret Hour”

ALBANY — “Secret Hour,” the winning play from the 10th annual NEXT ACT! New Play Summit in 2021, will begin to stage its world premiere at Capital Repertory Theatre with an opening on Tuesday, Jan. 31, and run through Sunday, Feb. 19. The play was written by Jenny Stafford and will be directed by Margaret E. Hall. 

Married couple, Kate and Ben, a workaholic ethics professor, and an unemployed programmer have invented the perfect game for getting to the truth called “Secret Hour.” What started as a fun game to become closer as a couple, turns the tables and puts the couple to the test as to whether knowing the whole truth is really a good thing. When an automobile accident unexpectedly reveals Kate’s deepest and darkest secret, her marriage spins out of control. A delicious adult puzzle about lies and the games we play to keep life moving along on cruise control and what happens when the forces of the universe– or at least human nature– make sure we take the wheel and keep our eyes on the very bumpy road ahead. 

A cast of three, all NYC actors, making their debut at theREP, is led by Marina, Joshua David Robinson, and Whit K. Lee. 

Playwright Jenny Stafford is the winner of the 2021 NEXT ACT! New Play Summit. Her work has been featured at Lincoln Center (The Lyrics of Jennifer Stafford), Joe’s Pub, Ars Nova, 54 Below, Prospect Theatre, Barrington Stage and elsewhere. 

Opening night is Tuesday, Jan. 31. Performances continue through Sunday, Feb. 19. Regular performance times Jan. 27- Feb. 19, 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday with matinees 3 p.m. Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday and 2 p.m. Wednesday, February 8.
