About the Play:

The Best Brothers is a full-length comedy by Daniel MacIvor. A bittersweet comedy, from one of Canada's most beloved playwrights, that explores grief, acceptance, and love in unexpected places.

Bunny Best has met her unfortunate end after a bizarre mishap at a Gay Days parade. Now her two sons, Kyle and Hamilton, have the task of arranging her funeral and caring for her most beloved companion, a troublesome Italian greyhound named Enzo. They bicker over her obituary, eulogy-giving, dog-sitting, Kyle's unfortunate taste in men, and who Mom loved best – only to discover it may have been her dog.

The Best Brothers premiered in 2012 at the Stratford Festival to rave reviews and later went on to a successful run at Toronto's Tarragon Theatre.

Cast: 2 men
