The Hunger Moon

March 20 - March 21

The Hunger Moon is evening of four unique, one-act plays from writers across North America, featuring an intergenerational cast of six performers live on stage. Over the course of 90 minutes, audiences will meet characters working to regain control of their personal narratives, confront and explore the significance and connection found in communal storytelling and how those stories continue to bind us together, even when we are kept apart.

Performances will be livestreamed in real-time.

Presented by The Ordinary Productions in association with the PHT Creative Hub Co-op. For tickets and more information, click here.
