House

Take a wild ride in this haunted mansion.

Posted on Sat, May 12, 2007 at 5:41 AM

Daniel MacIvor’s House is resplendent with bizarre and haunting images: a smile that fills a sewer pipe, a pair of Irish Setters fighting over the only opened tin of pate at a hip dog party, two people so filled with the missed possibilities of love that they explode. These pictures (and many more) are woven into the tall tales told by Victor, a lonely, angry man who is at a low-point in his already dismal life.

Victor uses the audience as both a sounding-board and a receptacle for the clutter of his mind. He admits that not everything he says is true, but the brilliance of this play is that true or not, each story, each image, makes it easier to understand Victor, and by extension, ourselves.

Sounds like a tall order for a one-man show? Judge for yourself.

Visit Daniel MacIvor’s House on May 12 at 9 pm and May 13 at 7 pm at the Alderney Landing Theatre, 2 Ochterloney St, Dartmouth. 1-888-311-9090
