"Virtuoso wordplay…tour de force" — The Globe & Mail
Theater artists and longtime friends Marcus Youssef and James Long sit at a table and play an invented game called winners and losers. In it, they name people, places or things— Pamela Anderson, microwave ovens, their fathers, Goldman Sachs, Mexico — pronouncing each one winner or loser. Their game turns personal as they mercilessly dissect each other's families, privileges and class backgrounds. The competition quickly heats up, resulting in an intimate and blisteringly honest performance.
James Long and Marcus Youssef are stalwarts of Vancouver BC’s theater scene. Their companies, Theatre Replacement and Neworld Theatre, have been responsible for dozens of original works and innovative engagements. Both companies are OtB alums whose past appearances at OtB include Sexual Practices of the Japanese (2007), The Adventures of Ali & Ali and the Axes of Evil (2007), That Night Follows Day (2009) and How to Disappear Completely (2013).
