Charismatic, confident and caring, Tom Hodges is that guy. The teacher students adore and parents admire. The smart, wise-cracking colleague with all the answers. The neighbor who takes care of the neighborhood. The seemingly perfect husband and father. But when a student accuses Tom of crossing a line, his friends and family can't help but question his actions and relationships become splintered. This delicately balanced, beautifully nuanced new drama digs deep beneath the surface of a happy suburban existence to explore the damage done when seeds of mistrust are planted. 23.5 Hours enthralled audiences in our Plays-in-Progress program and has been added as the final show of the 2013-14 Season. The remarkable reading cast returns to reprise their roles: Tom Astor, Joseph Fuqua, Julie Hunicutt, Elyse Mirto and Nicholas Podany.
