"Office Hour" | Berkeley Repertory Theatre
Julia Cho returns to Berkeley Rep with a searing and touching play that tunes into the plight of “the other” in a country steeped in mistrust and intolerance. Hiding in the back of the classroom, Dennis’ sullen presence has his fellow students and professors on edge. But during an office visit, his writing instructor seeks to break through Dennis’ silence and earn his trust—with shocking results. A deeply personal story of empathy and redemption, "Office Hour" explores otherness and paranoia while revealing our essential human need for connection.
Performances run through Mar. 25.
