HERE LIES HENRY
Henry is nervous, a self-proclaimed liar, and compelled by some unknown force to tell us his life story along with something we don't already know.  MacIvor's spellbinding head-scratcher of a one-man play twists and turns, flips and sidesteps through Henry's struggle to grasp the  meaning of life, love, beauty, death, and showmanship.  Theatrical, enigmatic, funny, moving, profoundly provocative, and not to be missed.

Chicago Theatre Beat says: "Michael Moran turns in a superb performance as Henry, playing the nervous energy of a compulsive liar very honestly, oxymoronically enough. He shows tremendous range, seamlessly maneuvering from fear to braggadocio to contemplation. Perhaps most impressively, for a show that is basically just a man in a suit talking to the audience for an hour with no lighting changes, no music, and minimal blocking, the audience does not get bored. Moran is completely engaging  even engrossing  as this sweaty little fibber."

The CHICAGO READER on ITP's Original Production of HENRY:
"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."  --Kerry Reid

Here Lies Henry will be performed at the Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art, 756 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago
