by Daniel MacIvor

From multi award-winning Canadian playwright MacIvor, Monster is a one-man show that explores the nature of evil and questions the possible link between media images of violence and actual crimes. Watch as one actor transforms into a series of characters whose lives are eerily related, taking the audience on a spellbinding ride into a horrible, grisly weekend in June. One weekend that sets off a shock wave of horror that reverberates throughout dozens of lives, in unexpected ways. Join Adam and a cast of characters, both familiar and strange, as they delve into the depths of darkness that surround the core of any man or woman. Are you a Monster?


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. MacIvor will be performing his new solo show, This Is What Happens Next, in Ottawa during May/June.
