Denise has spent the last five years dedicated to uncovering the truth behind her sister Michelle’s disappearance. Haunted by loose ends, she begins seeing visions of Michelle, who gradually guides her in the right direction. As Denise’s marriage and sanity crumble around her, she remains committed to unearthing an unfathomable truth, and coming to terms with a painfully crucial realization - one she has been desperately avoiding. The Hours That Remain is a moving, emotionally charged story of loss, bereavement, and unfaltering hope.
Keith Barker is a Metis artist from northwestern Ontario. He graduated from the George Brown Theatre School, moving on to become Artistic Associate at Native Earth Performing Arts. Currently he is the playwright-in-residence at Native Earth for the 2012/13 season. The Hours That Remain is his first full-length play.
"Keith Barker's searing new play at the Talking Stick Festival is a testament to how rarely the plight of missing aboriginal women makes it into the headlines." —Janet Smith, Georgia Straight
