The Hunger Moon: An Evening of Short Plays
Presented by The Ordinary Productions in association with the PHT Creative Hub Co-op
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.

About The Ordinary Productions
The Ordinary Productions is an urban theatre company, creating and living on the unceded, ancestral, and occupied, traditional lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Watuth), and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) Nations of the Coast Salish peoples. Theatre is our meeting place. We value innovative, accessible, and socially-conscious theatre that reflects our diverse community. We prioritize new works, female (identifying) stories and intergenerational stories. At the heart of our work is a challenge to our audiences; to join us in unearthing the magic that can be found in life’s most ordinary moments, as we use theatre to acknowledge and reflect that which connects us.
Produced with the cooperation of the Union of B.C. Performers and Canadian Actors' Equity Association.
