Overview

In prison, they are interviewed by right wing-journalist Cecilia Wainscott, who quickly discovers that Ichabod is a complex character—both a theoretical mathematician and an exuberantly dark misanthrope. In the end, Cecilia learns a little bit about herself, gay men, theoretical mathematics, and the nature of the universe.

Reviews

"An equally swank duo, disciples of Derrida, murder or claim to have murdered for a kaleidoscope of reasons. Maybe they want to subvert conventional ideas about gays; maybe they want to confirm them; maybe they want to have fun. The author-director, as capricious as they are, plays with all the possibilities, to surprisingly provocative effect." —Robert Cushman, National Post

"The boys and girls at the Buddies box office have their work cut out for them in Sky Gilbert's Rope Enough. There will be bums in seats for Gilbert's latest, a fully realized and compelling departure from his other work." —Kate Pedersen, NOW Magazine

"The dialogue is sharp and often witty… all these narrative statements finally come together to make some provocative statements about the nature of identity—gay or otherwise—in today's society." —Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star
