Alan Weston will portray Hamilton Best, and Andy Roth will play Kyle Best. Directed by Marianne Brorup Weston.
When free-spirited Bunny Best dies unexpectedly in a freak accident, her two middle-aged sons Hamilton and Kyle bicker over her funeral arrangements, her personal effects and her feisty Italian Greyhound, unearthing decades' worth of buried rivalry.
An eccentric modern comedy by one of Canada's most celebrated playwrights - about life, death, aging parents and dealing with brothers who simply refuse to grow up... or don't know how to stay young.
The Best Brothers premiered at the Stratford Festival in 2012, with MacIvor as the controlling, uptight brother, and John Beale as the feckless, irresponsible brother, mourning in very different ways the death of their mother, crushed by a Brazilian gay man in a fall from a float in the Toronto Gay Pride Parade. The real battle, however, is over which brother she loved the most, and who will inherit the destructive dog she came to love.
Playwright Daniel MacIvor (born July 23, 1962), is a Canadian actor, playwright, theatre director, and film director. He is probably best known for his acting roles in independent films and the sitcom Twitch City. He has written many plays, including "See Bob Run" "Never Swim Alone", "In On It", "A Beautiful View", "His Greatness", and with Daniel Brooks created a series of solo shows that have toured extensively internationally.
Daniel received the Governor General's Literary Award for Drama for his collection of plays "I Still Love You", and he was awarded the prestigious Siminovitch Prize in 2008. He is also the recipient of an Obie Award and a GLAAD Award. He is currently based in Halifax, and is developing a new play for Tarragon Theatre called "New Magic Valley Fun Town" and working on the libretto for Rufus Wainwright's "Hadrian", commissioned by the Canadian Opera Company.
