In On It

By Daniel MacIvor
Directed by Samantha MacDonald

Three stories, two men, one jacket.

Winner of the Siminovich Prize and the Governor General’s Literary Award. 

A spiralling narrative about a dying man trying to make plans for the end, a pair of lovers trying to make it work and two men trying to make a play. A world where accidents happen. A story about control. In On It is a play that keeps its options open.

We are very sorry to announce that Christian Goutsis, who was originally scheduled to play the role of THAT ONE, has had to withdraw from the show due to a family emergency. All of us at Lunchbox wish Christian and his family the best at this time. We are pleased to welcome Stafford Perry back to Lunchbox to take over the role of THAT ONE.


“…in addition to being immensely entertaining, also happens to challenge our perceptions of reality, identity and the evanescence of existence.” — Philadelphia Inquirer
