About the Plays:

A revamped and updated second edition of two of Daniel MacIvor's classic one-person shows.

See Bob Run and Wild Abandon two celebrated solo works by Daniel MacIvor, providing a portal into the fantastical and disappointed interiors of two young people, Bob and Steve, respectively. 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.

Cast: 1 woman

What people say:

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

In Wild Abandon we are introduced to Steve, a man who believes 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 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.

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
