About the Plays:

One Voice contains House and Here Lies Henry, two celebrated solo works by Daniel MacIvor. Giving his characters life in a whirlwind of words, Canadian fringe theatre legend Daniel MacIvor showcases his talents as a writer in two of his most celebrated solo shows. In groundbreaking House, Victor drags his audience through his life, his fantasies, his desires, and his recent push to the edge. Here Lies Henry is a story about a man alone on a room with a mission to tell you something you don't already know. These revised scripts for House and Here Lies Henry seethe with anger and soothe with comedy.

House is stand up sit down one man comedy nightmare about Victor, a man on the edge. His mother is possessed by the devil. His father is the saddest man in the world. His sister is in love with the dog. The one he loves does not love him … and he's got nowhere to live. (Premiered in 1992 at the Factory Theatre in Toronto; Cast: 1 man)

Here Lies Henry is about Henry, a man alone in a room who has got a lot he has to tell you, he just can't guarantee that it's all true. In the spotlight, with only the audience as his witness, Henry grapples with his choices and failures in a scramble to make sense of his life before it's too late. Daniel MacIvor's gripping one-man play offers a provocative take on love, death, beauty, truth, and of course, good old-fashioned lying. Here Lies Henry is funny, dark and absurd and likely something you've never seen before. (Premiered in 1995 at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in Toronto; Cast: 1 man)

Originally performed by Daniel MacIvor himself, House and Here Lies Henry are fringe festival classics that continue to be performed internationally by many actors in many languages.
