Panych Plays

Country Available: Canada, USA

Welcome to the world of Morris Panych, the internationally acclaimed playwright renowned for his biting wit, absurdist situations and existential themes.

Canada's answer to Beckett has a dilemma. When his play What Lies Before Us opens in Toronto, Panych is 3,000 miles away starring in his internationally acclamed play, Vigil. What is unusual is that this is the first time in a career spanning a quarter of a century that Panych has handed over the director's reigns for a world permiere of his own work. As opening night for Vigil and What Lies Before Us draws near, the telephone calls and e-mails heat up the lines between Toronto and Vancouver, resulting is a hyperactive roller coaster ride where art mirrors the always chaotic, often funny and sometimes sad, life of Morris Panych.
