Winners and Losers

What: 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 debate whether people, places or things – Robin Williams, camping, Meghan Markle, private schools – are winners or losers. This exploration of female friendships leads the audience 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? Presented by Chromatic Theatre in association with Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre and Arts Commons.
