On the weekend of January 11, 2004, celebrated American monologist Spalding Gray ended his life by jumping off the Staten Island Ferry in New York. That same weekend, on the other side of the country, Daniel MacIvor was spending three days in California in a series of sessions with a man who had offered to save MacIvor’s life. Linking these two real stories is a wholly original fiction about truth, lies and the four most important things in life.
Candid and darkly funny, Who Killed Spalding Gray? reunites Daniel MacIvor, one of Canada’s foremost playwrights, with longtime collaborator, director Daniel Brooks.
