(From the publisher):
"My mother is possessed by the devil. My father is the saddest man in the world. My sister is in love with the dog. The one I love does not love me... and I've got nowhere to live."
Meet Victor, the epicentre of HOUSE, Daniel MacIvor's whirlwind of words that took Toronto's theatre community by storm.
Winner of the 1991 Chalmers Canadian Play award, this stand-up-sit-down comedy nightmare introduces one of the most original creations in recent Canadian theatre--a character who develops his mesmerizing hold of the audience by foregrounding his own performance.
In HOUSE HUMANS Daniel MacIvor extends Victor's creative control to the printed page by providing more of Victor's eccentric stories--short takes on the walking wounded that illustrate one man's inhumanity to himself. Collectively, HOUSE HUMANS presents a troubling portrait in which the ties that bind also terrorize the human heart.
