The House of Yes
It's Thanksgiving, and Marty's arrival home is greatly anticipated by his twin sister Jackie-O, his mother Ms. Pascal, and his younger brother, Anthony. He arrives during a hurricane, but worse than the storm is the fact that Marty brought his new fiancée. Mental illness, alcoholism, incest, gun violence and the JFK assassination are all part of the dysfunctional world that MacLoed weaves seamlessly together in this dark comedy. Existing somewhere between "Long Day's Journey into Night'' and "The Addams Family," this is the story of a damaged family when the introduction of a stranger brings its secrets crawling into the light.
Presented by Yes Collective, this gripping black comedy is the theatre directorial debut for Leo Award Nominated, Matt Fentiman. Starring Tom Belding (Best Actor Winner RainCity Film Fest), Missy Cross (Leo Award Nominated, Best Actress Winner FNFF), Marc LeBlanc, Mattie Shisko (nominated West Australian Theatre Award), and Savonna Spracklin (Leo Award Winner, Best Actress nominee NZ & Vancouver WebFest).
"Gripping, funny and worth its reputation." - Time Out, London
"...A fascinating blend of frivolous family politics and menacing political allegory. It is wickedly funny, disturbing and vividly written....MacLeod writes funny, frightening dialogue, and she touches the nerve of our cozy, vicarious involvement with acts of public violence" - San Francisco Chronicle
