"...the ironic name stands in sharp contrast to this perceptive and thoroughly engrossing one-woman show." —Toronto Star on See Bob Run
A revamped and updated second edition of two of Daniel MacIvor’s classic one-person shows. Great for full-fledged productions, scene studies, monologues, and classroom use, See Bob Run & Wild Abandon is an essential addition to any theatre lover’s collection.
Bob is on the road. Bob is on the run. But from what, or whom, is she running? Follow Bob as she hops from car to car telling her story to unsuspecting drivers as she tries to put her life in the rear-view mirror. Will she make it to her destination? And what will she find when she gets there? Find out in the critically adored See Bob Run.
In Wild Abandon we are introduced to Steve, a man alone in the world. Steve is acerbic, opinionated, and desperate to figure himself out. As he recounts his life story, we follow Steve out the door of his strict Catholic home, through diners and bars and parks as we hear the tales that made the man. Wild Abandon is a story about running away, and about how to find your way home again.
