Three men, a great American playwright, his trusted and loyal assistant, and a young Canadian street hustler, find themselves together for two days in a hotel room in Vancouver. This is the story about the nature of life in a created world.

Inspired by a potentially true story about the great American playwright...


"His Greatness is a great piece of theatre. More than mere homage to Tennessee Williams, Daniel MacIvor's superb study of a fading Southern playwright is a finely detailed story with nuance to spare."

- Peter Bernie, Vancouver Sun

"It's rare to find a play in which the entire cast is so sharply written, but that's just one of the old-fashioned pleasures of His Greatness."

- Kamal Al-Solaulee, The Globe and Mail
