The Toronto-raised playwright and theatre director will end his run in August 2012, the centre announced Wednesday, according to CBC. After seven years and two terms Hinton described as "rewarding and fullfilling," the NAC had approached him to consider an additional term. After much thought over the summer, Hinton said he decided not to extend his contract and peter Hinton, who helped reinvigorate the National Arts Centre's English theatre division, is stepping down after his seventh season as artistic director. "The NAC is a unique gift to the people of Canada. It has been a privilege to be a part of its legacy and to build its meaningful place with artists and audiences across the country," he said in a statement. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
