About the Play:

Mirror Game is a full-length drama by Dennis Foon. This play focuses on children and teenagers involved in damaging relationships – both at home and with friends – in which they are emotionally, mentally, and physically bullied.

Mirror Game takes a penetrating look at the lives of four teenagers who are involved in abusive relationships. The play examines the cyclical nature of physical and psychological abuse and is a witness to the impact of destructive relationships on self-esteem. When abusive behaviour surfaces in the lives of four friends, the teenagers are forced to examine how learned behaviour can be mirrored by victims and home situations. This is a powerful and moving play that speaks honestly and intelligently to teens.

Mirror Game was first produced in 1989 by Green Thumb Theatre at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre (The Cultch) and in 1991 by Young People's Theatre in Toronto.

Cast: 2 female, 2 male

What people say:

"…a formidable statement on family and the long-term effects it has." — Toronto Sun

"…conscientious, honest, responsible and entertaining." — Vancouver Province

"Mirror Game is fun, but not frivolous; it is up to date without making embarrassing efforts to be trendy; and it deals with an astounding number of serious issues – from verbal, physical, and sexual harassment to parental neglect and alcoholism – but does so naturally, entertainingly, and without oppressive earnestness. Mirror Game is an extraordinary play." — University of Toronto Quarterly
