About the Plays:

See Bob Run and Wild Abandon contains two one-act plays by Daniel MacIvor. These celebrated one-person plays are intricately structured works in which innocence and malevolence, humour and horror are played in counterpoint. Wild Abandon is a manic piece, blackly humorous, about a character named Steve who is contemplating suicide, while See Bob Run is a horror story framed in a fairy tale. Great for full-fledged productions, scene studies, monologues, and classroom use, See Bob Run & Wild Abandon is an essential addition to any theatre lover's collection.

See Bob Run has proved very popular with community theatres. It is a one woman show about a journey into the world of a teenage runaway who calls herself Bob ("Nobody ever called me Roberta, ever"). Bob is on the road. Bob is on the run. But from what, or whom, is she running? Follow Bob as she as she hitchhikes across the country. She hops from car to car telling her story to unsuspecting drivers. Bob presents her life as a warped fairy-tale, but it seems that she is fleeing from a very real act of violence. Is she travelling toward true sanctuary or merely a delusional safe haven? Find out in the critically adored See Bob Run. (Premiered in 1987 at the Theatre Centre in Toronto; Cast: 1 woman)

What people say:

"...the ironic name stands in sharp contrast to this perceptive and thoroughly engrossing one-woman show." — Toronto Star

Wild Abandon is about Steve, a man who thinks he's alone in the world. Steve is acerbic, opinionated, and desperate to figure himself out. As he recounts his life story, we follow Steve out the door of his strict Catholic home, through diners and bars and parks on a dark, introspective journey that is visceral, humbling and hilarious as we hear the tales that made the man. Wild Abandon is a story about running away, and about how to find your way home again. (Premiered in 1988 at Theatre Passe Muraille in Toronto; Cast: 1 man)

What people say:

"...a one-man show without valleys. It's a wonderful piece – honest, imaginative, profound, moving and very funny." — Carole Corbeil, Canadian arts critic and novelist
