Berkeley Street Theatre Downstairs, November 10 – Dec. 8th, 2013.
Winners and Losers embraces the ruthless logic of modern-day capitalism, and tests its impact on our closest personal relationships. Theatre artists and long-time friends James Long and Marcus Youssef play a game in which they name things and people and debate whether, from their perspective, these things are winners or losers. As the conversation unfolds, the competition quickly begins to have an unanticipated cost.
Crow’s Artistic Director Chris Abraham has been working with our collaborators in Vancouver over the past year. The production premiered to rave reviews at the Gateway Theatre (November 2012) and then at the PuSH Festival (January 2013) cited as “one of the best shows of 2012!”
Winners and Losers toured in Canada (Montreal and Ottawa) and Europe (Ireland, UK, Netherlands, Italy and Iceland), before playing in Toronto from November 10 – December 8, 2013.
