Lunch Hour


Jean Kerr

Published by Samuel French Inc

3 Male 2 Female

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 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" ~ N.Y. Times

"An amiable comedy about the eternal quadrangle.... The author's most entertaining play in years" ~ N.Y. Daily News
