“Are you satisfied with what you know?”

A seemingly well-adjusted bachelor finds his life forever altered on a summer evening in 1962 when an alluring encyclopaedia saleswoman materializes in his backyard to make an unusual sales pitch… The next hour of real time will surprise and delight in this witty and romantic screwball comedy by Fringe favourite Stewart Lemoine.

The Exquisite Hour sold out multiple performances and was shortlisted for the Pick of the Fringe, Georgia Straight Critics’ Choice Award, and the Cultchivating the Fringe Award for the 2010 Vancouver Fringe Festival.

“Josue Laboucane is fantastically uptight and nerdy… Nevada Yates Robart plays the enthusiastic encyclopedia saleswoman, Mrs. Darimont, with such a balance poise and neuroses that we’re not surprised to discover more than we bargained for in her… a nod must be given to director Julie McIsaac as she provides a strong cohesiveness and momentum to the piece as a whole.”

– Nathan Zeitner,
