“MacIvor and Brooks are two of the most original minds now working in Canadian Theatre”––The Globe And Mail

The dynamic duo of MacIvor and Brooks have created such seminal works as Here Lies Henry, Monster, Cul-de-sac, and Who Killed Spalding Gray. For their seventh collaboration, they chronicle the life of Peter in a virtuosic solo work about love, abandonment and the stories we tell ourselves. Let’s Run Away chronicles the life of Peter, who after finding his estranged mother’s memoir following her death, reads aloud the story of his life as told sometimes incorrectly by his mother.

Let's Run Away is a touching story of love and abandonment, and MacIvor is glorious in this captivating solo performance.

The Big Secret Theatre is not a secret anymore and at one point it wasn't even a theatre! The space, hidden away on the +15 level of Arts Commons was originally designed to function as a lounge. In 1987, One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre approached Arts Commons seeking space and the lounge space was leased to them on a trial basis. Today the company calls the Big Secret Theatre their permanent home.
