Let’s Run Away

Spotlight Project

Location: The Highland Arts Theatre

A lightly staged reading of Daniel MacIvor new solo performance Let’s Run Away that Toronto’s NOW Magazine called “Profoundly unnerving, intriguing and affecting” and the Globe and Mail observed as “Equally amusing and disturbing.”

Tonight Peter is putting on a show, in the show he will read from a manuscript. It is a large manuscript but not to worry, he’s only going to read the parts about him, and there aren’t many.  And if Peter can keep his cool and if the audience can just give him a little bit of their time and their attention maybe he can tell everyone something about who we are to others and who we might be to ourselves when we’re alone.  And maybe that can make it all  a little bit easier.
