- Event Details
Henry is nervous, a self-proclaimed liar, and compelled by some unknown force to tell us his life story along with something we don't already know. MacIvor's spellbinding head-scratcher of a one-man play twists and turns, flips and sidesteps through Henry's struggle to grasp the meaning of life, love, beauty, death, and showmanship. Theatrical, enigmatic, funny, moving, profoundly provocative, and not to be missed.
The CHICAGO READER on ITP's Original Production of HENRY:
"Canadian playwright Daniel MacIvor doesn't get produced much in Chicago. On the evidence of this 1996 solo gem, that's a shame. MacIvor's tale of a self-proclaimed liar delivering snippets from his alleged autobiography zigs and zags through witty asides and dollops of meta-theatrical trickery. But MacIvor knows how to pull back from the fiery pit of self-consciousness and deliver unadorned truths (or seeming truths) unencumbered by pathos. In this inaugural production from Interrobang Theatre Project, Michael Moran's performance is perfectly pitched between a naked desire for our approval and joy at nudging us off-balance just when we think we know where he's taking us." --Kerry Reid
Here Lies Henry will be performed at the Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art, 756 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago
