Never Swim Alone & This Is A Play

Two plays

By Daniel MacIvor

Paperback £22.99

Two plays from the Toronto-based writer-director-performer.

A funny, satirical story, Never Swim Alone is about Frank and Bill, two egotistical men locked in a ruthless competition of one-upmanship for seemingly no reason.

A hilarious metaplay, This Is A Play follows three actors who, while performing, reveal their own thoughts and motivations as they struggle through crazy stage directions and an unoriginal musical score.

Press Quotes

'[Never Swim Alone] is a perfectly self-contained and unabashedly artificial work... [MacIvor] is a writer with an angular sense of humour and an uncommon knack for probing basic elements and truths of human behaviour.'

Toronto Star

'Ingenious, whimsical, a lyrical lunacy in the writing, This Is A Play is a theatre experience comedy you might associate with Tom Stoppard.'
