All the Winners and Losers in Edmonton

Winners and Losers is a staged conversation that embraces the ruthless logic of modern-day capitalism, and tests its impact on our closest personal relationships. 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 which they name things and people — Pamela Anderson, microwave ovens, Goldman Sachs, their fathers — and debate whether, from their perspective, these things are winners or losers. As the conversation unfolds, the competition quickly begins to have an unanticipated cost.

Winners and Losers has toured in Canada (Vancouver, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto) and Europe (Ireland, UK, Netherlands, Italy and Iceland). It opens April 9 in Edmonton, AB and runs until April 18 at The Club Cabaret. Tickets start at $27. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Citadel Theatre website.

Look for the print edition of Winners and Losers in May!
