Toronto: “Winner & Losers” is now available from CBC Podcasts
Wednesday, January 20, 2021
Theatre Replacement and Neworld Theatre in Association with Crow’s Theatre's 2013 production of Winners and Losers, directed by Chris Abraham, has recently been adapted into an audio drama by PlayME on CBC Podcasts. With the closure of theatres across the country, PlayME transforms hit plays into bingeable audio dramas.
In Winners and Losers, playwrights and real-life friends Marcus Youssef and James Long play a game. They sit across from each other and pick people, places and things to declare either “winners” or “losers.” They start with microwaves and Mexico but soon move to more personal matters. Who has more street smarts? Who has more privilege? And which man was raised by a loser?
