The Blue Hour by Michele Vance Hehir is a timely, funny,
complicated and ultimately heartbreaking story that takes place in the
fictional small town of Roseglen, Alberta, circa 1947/48. The story
centres around a young boy fighting for his own survival, that of his
overworked single mother and of his older sister who’s aching to escape
her confined world. The Blue Hour explores the desire for love, its
betrayal and the enduring realization that hope matters.
The Blue Hour by Michele Vance Hehir won the Alberta
Playwriting competition in 2017 and was one of the chosen plays in
SkirtsAfire’s play development series “Peep Show” in 2018.
"The Blue Hour" contains some gunshots and sensitive subject matter. To
