Performances: February 5-8 & 12-15, 2003

Venue: Hagey Hall 180

This Is A Play was about a play about a play. Liam Lacey, in The Globe and Mail, referred to it as, "Ingenious, whimsical…a comedy you might associate with Tom Stoppard." When the play first premiered at the 1992 Toronto Fringe Festival, audiences were knocked out by MacIvor's manic humour and the simplicity with which he skewered social conventions.

House, a one-man tour de force, originally featured MacIvor himself. Since its premiere, almost eight years ago, the play has been performed by many actors in many languages -- if anyone wondered about the playwright and actor being inextricably defined by this work, the production history succeeds at eradicating such thoughts. House is, by turns, savagely comic and heartfelt.
