Letting the viewer 'In On It'

Critic's Choice


April 14, 2002|By Mary Carole McCauley

Da da kamera's In On It is like a set of Russian dolls: There's a story within a story within a story. In this case, a dying man makes his final plans, two gay lovers work through their relationship and two men put together a play.

If that sounds elliptical, it is, but it's not inaccessible. Toronto playwright Daniel MacIvor has been described by a critic as "the Bertolt Brecht of his generation" and In On It has received raves in such theater-savvy cities as London, New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Toronto and Edinburgh, Scotland.

Da da kamera is a Canadian company founded by MacIvor and others that has produced original, experimental theater pieces since 1986. MacIvor and longtime collaborator Darren O'Donnell will perform In On It for three performances only at Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St. Show times are 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and tickets cost $20 for adults and $15 for students, seniors and artists. Call 410-752-8558.
