How It Works
Congratulations to Daniel MacIvor for winning the prestigious $100,000 Siminovitch Award for 2008!
PRAISE FOR PTE 's HOW IT WORKS :
"Daniel MacIvor brings wit and wisdom to this fast-moving story. The dialogue is tight and real... His story is simple enough yet completely engaging. In the hands of this award-winning Canadian playwright, the ordinary can become extraordinary." Winnipeg Free Press Online
"...How It Works flows effortlessly and effectively, propelled by MacIvor's humour and compassion as well as director Robert Metcalfe's clear-eyed direction." Kevin Prokosh
When your teenage daughter is struggling with drugs, boys and the law, it’s probably not the best time to start dating. But after suffering through a messy divorce, Al is looking for a new start. Enter Christine, who not only soothes the scars of Al’s marital breakdown, but may even know what it takes to heal the girl with the angry heart. Told with MacIvor’s characteristic wit, humour and passion for the power of storytelling, How it Works is a moving portrait of how we can recreate the idea of family in the modern world.
"This is a wise, witty and warm family drama, shot through with in-sights about the human condition. Only the truly gifted playwright can whisk an audience from laughter to tears and back again in a matter of moments" Toronto Star
