A funny, satirical story, Never Swim Alone is about Frank and Bill, two egotisitical men locked in a ruthless competition of one-upmanship for seemingly no reason. A hilarious metaplay, This Is A Play follows three actors who, while performing, reveal their own thoughts and motivations as they struggle through crazy stage directions and an unoriginal musical score.


"Ingenious, whimsical, a lyrical lunacy in the writing, This Is A Play is a theatre experience comedy you might associate with Tom Stoppard. " —Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail

"[Never Swim Alone] a perfectly self-contained and unabashedly artificial work. .. [MacIvor] is a writer with an angular sense of humour and an uncommon knack for probing basic elements and truths of human behaviour. " —Vit Wagner, Toronto Star
