The Ninth Hour
Written & performed by Kate Douglas & Shayfer James
A rock-noir revelation of mankind's unending pattern of glory and ruin as told through triumphant anthems, heart-wrenching lullabies, heroes & monsters. A hero, summoned to be a protector against a relentless enemy, must confront the evil within herself as a monster comes to terms with the agony of isolation at his life's end.
The Ninth Hour has been developed at the Writers Colony at Goodspeed Musicals and the National Theatre Institute at The O'Neill. It debuted this summer at The Met Cloisters.
