About the Play:

Cul-De-Sac is a dazzling one-man show by Daniel MacIvor. It was a finalist for the 2005 Governor General's Award for Drama.

About the effect of a violent act on a suburban neighbourhood, Daniel MacIvor himself played 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.

Cast: 1 man.

What people say:
