Synopsis: 

In Madeleine George's The Zero Hour, Rebecca and her chronically unemployed butch girlfriend, O, have created a happy nest in their run-down Queens walk-up. But domestic bliss starts slipping away as their daily lives are overtaken by charming Nazis, family ghosts and the secrets they keep. The two women fight for, and against, each other in this sharp, moving almost-love story.

    Hitler Youth Alumni and the No. 7 Train

    Jason Zinoman

    July 8, 2010: Since it runs through one of the most ethnically diverse areas in New York City, the No. 7 train has become a symbol for the melting pot. But not even John Rocker, the Atlanta Braves pitcher who compared the subway line to riding through Beirut, could imagine bumping into a charming Nazi on a ride through Queens.

    The Zero Hour

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    July 7, 2010: Madeleine George's play "The Zero Hour" shouldn't be confused with "Zero Hour," which is about Zero Mostel and currently playing off-Broadway. Or with "Year Zero," about Cambodian-Americans in California, which recently concluded its run at Second Stage Uptown.

    The Zero Hour

    Andy Propst

    July 8, 2010: Madeleine George's "The Zero Hour" grabs our interest from its first provocative line. As girlfriends O (Hannah Cabell) and Rebecca (Angela Goethals) lie in bed in their cramped Flushing apartment (effective scenic design by Mimi Lien), O murmurs, "I think my mother may just have died." The moment beautifully sets the stage for this play that puts the women's relationship under a microscope while blending realism and fantasy and exploring the bonds between mothers and daughters. Ambitious and sprawling, "The Zero Hour" never holds the audience's attention as deftly as it does at the outset.

    The Zero Hour

    Pamela Newton

    July 8, 2010: In 2003, thirteen young playwrights decided they’d had enough of staged readings and founded 13P, a collective committed to mounting full-scale productions of one new work by each writer. Number ten in the lineup, Madeleine George’s The Zero Hour, is well served by the company’s mission. In this visually rich staging (thanks to an elegant and clever set by Mimi Lien), the play lives and breathes in a way it never could from behind a row of music stands.

    The Zero Hour

    Michael Walek

    July 8, 2010: Madeleine George's new play The Zero Hour, just opened at the Walkerspace as part of 13P. If you don't know what 13P is, don't admit it. They are just the über-cool playwriting group of thirteen playwrights who don't just develop but actually do new plays. This, their tenth production, reflects their sensibility in every way. The Zero Hour is bold, thoughtful, and incredibly beautiful.
