In 7 Stories, multi award-winning Canadian playwright Morris Panych creates a meta-theatrical gem of a black comedy, full of fanciful characters with a wistfully existential conclusion.
Fast-paced and full of energy, this sophisticated satire takes place on the window ledge of a seven-storey apartment building where a man is contemplating ending it all. Endlessly interrupted by a variety of quirky, self-absorbed tenants, he becomes drawn into the absurdity of their daily lives.
