About the Plays:

Three provoking dramatic pieces that encourage adults to reflect on their past and young people to reflect on their future. These plays — Life Science, 2B WUT UR and Cost of Living — address the issues of AIDS, sexuality, drug and alcohol abuse, and teenage alienation. Of the writing of these plays, Morris Panych says: "Through these plays I had a chance to replay, in an imaginary way, the years I had missed living; the days and months of inexplicable sorrow and confusion that I had endured, the way most young people endure them — in solitude and in silence."

About the Playwright:

Morris Panych is a playwright, actor and director who has been described as "a man for all seasons in Canadian theatre." He has appeared in over fifty theatre productions and in numerous television and film roles. He has directed over thirty theatre productions and written over a dozen plays that have been produced throughout Canada, Great Britain and the U.S.A., including 7 Stories and Other Schools of Thought — which features three plays for young audiences. He has won the Jessie Richardson Theatre Award fourteen times for acting and directing. He has also been nominated six times for Toronto's Dora Mavor Moore Award and three times for the Chalmers Award.

Panych's plays are characterized by a deliciously dark humour, brimming with existential themes and theatre of the absurd style and sensibility. Dancing between hope and despair, they explore — often playfully but always revealingly — philosophical issues such as human relationships, the nature of good and evil, and the relationship between fantasy and reality.
