One Yellow Rabbit’s 31st High Performance Rodeo presents Winners and Losers, written and performed by Marcus Youssef and James Long.
January 25–28, 2017
West Village Theatre
2007 10 Ave SW
About the play: Theatre artists and long-time friends Marcus Youssef and James Long sit at a table and play a game they made up, called Winners and Losers. In it, they name people, places or things — Tom Cruise, microwave ovens, their fathers, rainforests, druids, etc. — and debate whether these things are winners or losers. As each seeks to defeat the other, the debate becomes highly personal, as they dissect each other’s individual, familial, and class histories. And because one of these men is the product of economic privilege, and the other not, the competition very quickly begins to cost. Winners and Losers is a staged conversation that embraces the ruthless logic of capitalism and tests its impact on our closest personal relationships as well as our most intimate experiences of self.
