Winners and Losers

15 Feb 2013

Theatre artists and long-time friends Marcus and James sit at a table and play a game they made up called Winners and Losers. In it, they name people, places or things – Pamela Anderson, microwave ovens, their fathers, Goldman Sachs – and debate whether or not they are winners or losers. As Marcus and James seek to defeat each other, the debate becomes more and more personal as they dissect each other’s familial and class histories. Winners and Losers is a conversation that tests capitalism’s impact on our closest personal relationships, and our most intimate experiences of self.

Written and performed by Marcus Youssef and James Long
Directed by Chris Abraham
