Winners and Losers is one part game, one part conversation that leans into our universally flawed human logic, and the desire to win at all costs. Valerie Planche and Makambe K. Simamba, two powerhouse performers at different stages of life and careers, debate whether people, places or things – Robin Williams, camping, Meghan Markle, private schools – are winners or losers. This exploration of female friendships leads us down a spiralling path of staunch sisterhood and deep-seated difference. As the discussion gets personal, how far is too far when confronting deep-seated beliefs?

Based on the Governor General Award-nominated text by Marcus Youssef and James Long, this homegrown adaptation – re-written and re-cast with an all-female team – premiered to rave reviews at Toronto’s SummerWorks Performance Festival!

To make planning your trip a bit easier, the most convenient parking can be found in the Arts Commons Parkade or across the street in the City Hall Parkade (attached by a +15 with an elevator). Arts Commons is also easily accessible by Calgary Transit (the C-Train is a block away) and the Centre City Cycle Track Network (there are bike racks out front of each entrance on 8th Ave SE).
