When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Aug. 12 2012

A remounting of a show that ran in 2011. Of the earlier production, Kerry Reid wrote: "Canadian playwright Daniel MacIvor doesn't get produced much in Chicago. On the evidence of this 1996 solo gem, that's a shame. MacIvor's tale of a self-proclaimed liar delivering snippets from his alleged autobiography zigs and zags through witty asides and dollops of meta-theatrical trickery. But MacIvor knows how to pull back from the fiery pit of self-consciousness and deliver unadorned truths (or seeming truths) unencumbered by pathos. In this inaugural production from Interrobang Theatre Project, Michael Moran's performance is perfectly pitched between a naked desire for our approval and joy at nudging us off-balance just when we think we know where he's taking us."
