About the Play:

You Are Here is a full-length drama by Daniel MacIvor. In fluidly madcap style, one of Canada's most distinctive and influential post-modern playwrights takes us on a voyage in flashback through the not-so-extraordinary life of a woman named Alison who looks back on her life and loves in the worlds of entertainment journalism and film. Along with her friends, lovers and work colleagues, we find out how Alison got from there to here.

You Are Here enters the mind of Alison, a woman tracing her life from a once-idealistic journalist to meaningless disappointment in the film business. The journey begins with Alison as an independent, unconventional woman, who is "never the marrying type," yet unfortunately marries psychologist and wannabe screenwriter Jerry. As her marriage strains under the weight of Jerry's aspirations, she produces his script using her media connections to film director Thomas, who has sold out his talent to commercial starlet Diane. Bitterly betrayed by Jerry and Diane and impenetrable to the help offered by Thomas and her oldest friend, Richard, Alison lapses into alcoholism, despair and the arms of a lethal lothario.

You Are Here premiered in 2000 at the National Theatre School of Canada while he wad writer-in-residence. The Toronto premiere was in in 2001 at Theatre Passe Muraille. Since then the play has been successfully staged at several professional theatres across Canada, and has been mounted by community theatres.

Cast: 3 women, 5 men

What people say:

"MacIvor … once again tears down the fourth wall and replaces its phony illusion with a more direct yet still mysterious bond with the audience." — The Globe and Mail

"Daniel MacIvor's script for You Are Here is so harsh but so rewarding that it's downright cathartic. This show is one of the best things you'll ever see, and you'll be laughing so hard that its impact will sneak up on you." — Georgia Straight
