An Uncertain Hour
Published by Dramatic Publishing
9 Male 2 Female
The style of the play is rooted in the forms of oral storytelling common to the poets of the mountain country of northern and central Italy. This style understands the actors as storytellers, performing whatever roles or tasks are necessary to communicate the story to the audience.
An Uncertain Hour portrays Primo Levi as a Dante for our times, calling us from the "infernos" of our own making, the various false lights of modern ideologies and dominating powers, to a genuine, human "paradiso," the light of sympathetic understanding, courageous compassion, and generous creativity for the good of all - the true purpose of science and art.
