Here Lies Henry

If you’ve ever dreamt of being naked in front of a crowd of strangers … come see Henry. If you have ever given a speech but not had time to prepare, forgotten a punch-line, if you have ever bent the truth (even just a little) … come see Henry. With the promise of life, love and laughter, with the promise of the stage (and all the magic therein) … Here Lies Henry is more than just a treat to experience; it is an eye opening treatise on the art of lying and the nature of truth itself. We hope you can make it out.

This Is A Play

When you watch a play a world is created for you full of stories and characters. However, to find yourself listening in on the thoughts of the actors as they move about on stage can be mildly unsettling, startlingly revealing, and uproariously hilarious! Exposed to the turmoil of each actor’s inner thoughts, the evening’s true story will rise to the surface and you will discover why This Is A Play.


Daniel MacIvor is an award winning Canadian playwright/actor/director. Born in Cape Breton he has been creating new theatre since 1986. For 20 years MacIvor was the artistic director of his own company, da da kamera. He continues to create new theatre, and also works in film. In 2006 MacIvor won the Governor General’s award for Drama for his collection of plays I Still Love You, and he was the 2008 recipient of the Siminovitch Prize in Theatre, Canada’s largest theatre award. His most recent play, Communion, recently debuted at the Tarragon Theatre in Toronto.
