‘Shadow Hour’ Sometimes we make our own truth. Sometimes it is made for us.

The €œjury€ (Jerold McFatter, Diana Evans, Jeanette Hall, Cameron Johnson, Laure Olson, Katie Pratt, and Chris Lamb) gets an insight into the events of the evening between Senator Martin (Alan Pontes) and Christy (Alicia Thayer), but whose insight? Which version of what happened is the real version? Photo by Kris Hunt

Nothing is black and white in Ralph Tropf’s brilliant courtroom drama “Shadow Hour” opening Friday, April 13, at 8 p.m. at The Studio Theatre.

Christy Connelly (Alicia Thayer) has accused Sen. Adam Martin (Alan Pontes) of sexual harassment. But events and memories don’t necessarily match up as more and more people get involved in the events leading to the trial, leaving a jury filled with their own prejudices to decide … Guilty or Not Guilty.

“Shadow Hour” explores the gray areas of sex, power, and justice. Places where there are no easy answers, where one decision can lead to several results, where opinion holds as much weight as fact.

Continuing their new tradition of celebrating opening nights, Bob and Ro Productions will host a free wine-tasting before the April 13 performance. Arrive at 7 p.m. to enjoy a glass of wine, a small snack and good company before the show.

This play deals with adult situations.

Bob and Ro Productions presents “Shaodw Hour” on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. April 13 through May 20. Tickets are $20 general admission, $18 seniors, $15 students, and can be arranged by calling the box office at (877) 532-7171 between noon and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Tickets can also be purchased at the door, The Studio Theatre, 1028 R St., Sacramento.
