David K O'Hara's NOW UNTIL THE HOUR Plays Edinburgh Fringe, Aug 6-10

David K O'Hara's lyrical dramatic monologue Now Until The Hour will play at the prestigious Summerhall (venue 26) at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. David K O'Hara may be based in New York but is no stranger to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. His play Book Ends was performed at Summerhall in its inaugural year in 2011, and he has also had plays staged at London's King's Head Theatre and The Old Red Lion.

Performed by British Actress Jacquie Crago, one of our most respected REP Theatre actresses and resident voice/dialect coach on the National Theatre's production of War Horse.

Now Until the Hour is the story of a woman who has been marginalized all her life, and who now finds herself in a world of unanswered phones and unanswered questions. She is waiting on a call -- is it from God, from the ghostly boy who haunts her, or from the man who may well be the love of her life? Whoever it is, she keeps missing them. Until now.

In the spirit of Krapp's Last Tape, this is one powerful stand before the dying of the light.
