This is What Happens Next

Daniel MacIvor wrote and stars in the one man production. The start is a bit weak – entering late and blathering on about being cuaght in a line at Starbucks, but it is funny and gets the audience into the mood to laugh. It also permtis him to transition the various scenes, since he has already broken the third wall.
Another play about misfits and outsiders. (Strange how our theatre going seems to follow themes!)
MacIvor is great in all the roles he plays and brings the separate stories all togther into one very effectively. I loved him best as Warren, but Kevin was also a very believable character. It nevers ceases to amaze me how thoroughly actors can transform themselves into another character simply by changing posture and voice.
Lighting and sound were very effective.

Theatre junkie, who thinks live theatre is the ultimate form of living on the edge. You never know what will happen when an actor steps on the stage.

    Yes, it was really good. MacIvor reminds me of Ronnie Burkett, without the puppets but with similar humour underlaid with veins of anger (and desperation?)
