9th Hour Theatre Company

9th Hour develops and presents to the public works of theatre that explore the spiritual tensions created by the Christian faith, non-belief, and personal conscience. During 2016, a series of two play readings ("Sisters" and "Frozen Yogourt") and discussion sessions were conducted, the company worked with artists throughout the year on the creation of an original piece of theatre to be presented in a future year, and developed its strategic plan for the future, including 2017 programming, based on feedback received from the community and the results of its play readings.
9th Hour's vision is: to produce diverse works of theatre and performance arts for the Canadian public in the national capital region, eastern Ontario, and beyond, using the skills and talents of both veteran professionals and emerging artists alike; to present both true and fictional stories of faith, hope, lover, life, suffering and redemption; stories that capture imaginations, challenge and inspire hearts and minds, and stories that stimulate discussion and dialogue evoking consideration of faith; and to engage theatre and performing arts of all kinds to capture and showcase the stories of people, relationships, current affairs, historical events, and to provide opportunities for others to tell their own story using artistic expression.
