Winners and Losers – Marcus Youssef, James Long
Two friends pass the time together playing a made-up game in which they name people, places, or things and debate whether they are successful or not; in other words, whether they are winners or losers. Each friend seeks to defeat the other, and because one of these men grew up economically privileged and the other did not, the competition very quickly heats up.
Marcus Youssef is associate artistic producer at Vancouver’s NeWorld Theatre and teaches theater at Concordia University in Montreal.
James Long has been making theater since 1995 and is artistic director of Theatre Replacement in Vancouver.
