Norm Reynolds is a member of the Playwrights Guild of Canada. A hit at the inaugural Summerworks Festival (CBC Radio, NOW Magazine), Put Up Your Hand went on to be one of four scripts chosen for the WordWorks Festival at Solar Stage. Reynolds has published short fiction in the United States and Canada, and book reviews in the Canadian national press. He currently teaches English and Drama in Toronto.

abstract:

My dad died in 2000. The following year, I ended a long-standing friendship (not romantic). It struck me that both experiences of loss physically felt the same. I had the good fortune to workshop my play idea with Edward Albee at the Humber School for Writers. Albee said: “That’s a really wonderful monologue. If you put it at the end, you might have something.” I did. After some reimagining, The Good-bye Play had its premiere at Theatre Aurora’s Playwrights of Spring Festival, and TheatreStarts.

As the promo for the play says, some relationships never die. Leo and Patricia have split. Patricia has come back for closure. Leo isn’t having any of it. A comedy about grievances, petty and great, and the difficulty of finally saying good-bye.
