A darkly comic look at life in Toronto through a fractured family of privilege. Money, sex, lies and power collide in the aftermath of a champagne-fueled birthday party in a downtown penthouse residence. Cake and Dirt is a mystery of consequences and causes, a parable of deceit, and an urban ghost story where a small act of evil may indeed create a great good.
“MacIvor’s script is cleverly structured to keep you guessing and contains some scorching social commentary; Storch delivers a hilarious performance” – Theatromania.com
“Daniel MacIvor’s writing techniques, combined with Amiel Gladstone’s directing, really shine through with this production. All in all, this play is definitely a hit for Tarragon. – The Theatre Reader
“Often-funny, always-witty, occasionally-piercing examination of privilege well worth the price of admission. Like much of MacIvor’s work, it illustrates surprisingly dark truths while making you laugh.” – My Town Crier
