Co-founder of Toronto's groundbreaking theatre company da da kamera, Daniel MacIvor is Canada's most influential post-modern playwright. In his latest collaboration with director Daniel Brooks, MacIvor plays the role of Leonard, who narrates the events leading up to his murder while trying to understand them himself. Through the course of the play, we peer behind the curtains of his neighbourhood as MacIvor transforms into the multiple characters who bear witness to Leonard's life and death. Yet each of their stories, while internally consistent, tells a subtly different version of what happened, progressively colouring and transforming our understanding of the characters as we think we had come to know them. In a headlong rush we understand that everyone's story inevitably dead-ends at precisely the bottom of the preconceptions they brought to its telling. Punctuated by brilliant lighting and a mood-setting soundscape, this dazzling one-man show is storytelling of the highest order.

A lot of bleh. A good ending, but mostly people just talking about stuff. I'm sorry Daniel and I still love you, but you win some you lose some.
