1982-1983

LUNCH HOUR by Jean Kerr

Never has Jean Kerr's wit had a keener edge or her comic sense more peaks of merriment than in this clever confection which starred Gilda Radner and Sam Waterston on Broadway as a pair whose spouses are having an affair. They counter by "inventing" an affair of their own. He, ironically, is a marriage counsellor and a bit of a stick while his wife is a real go-getter who easily juggles husband, lover and mother. The other is a kook married to a very rich man. All ends forgivingly for both couples.

"Civilized, charming, stylish.... Very warm and most amusing.... Delicately interweaves laughter and romance."-NY Times
