An exhilarating, playful, and brutally honest two-hander from the producers of 2013’s Someone Else.
Produced by Theatre Replacement and Neworld Theatre, in association with Crow’s Theatre, Presented by Crow’s Theatre in association with Canadian Stage
Winners and Losers is a staged conversation that embraces the ruthless logic of modern-day capitalism, and tests its impact on our closest personal relationships. Theatre artists and long-time friends Marcus Youssef and James Long sit at a table and play a game they made up called “winners and losers,” in which they name things and people — Pamela Anderson, microwave ovens, Goldman Sachs, their fathers — and debate whether, from their perspective, these things are winners or losers. As the conversation unfolds, the competition quickly begins to have an unanticipated cost.
“Youssef… and Long… have delivered the goods — the thrilling, experimental, theatrical goods.” – Georgia Straight.
“The experience for the audience is exhilarating.” – Vancouver arts journalist Jo Ledingham.
“Verbal fireworks.” – The Globe and Mail.
