Daniel MacIvor is a prolific and popular playwright — not to mention an actor, director, and screenwriter — but he remains best known in his native Canada. Still, he has had a number of successes in New York over the years, putting on celebrated work in local festivals (Never Swim Alone, which played Fringe in 1999 and later received an off-Broadway run) and experimental venues (A Beautiful View at Under the Radar, In on It and Cul-de-Sac at P.S.122). Now, at Urban Stages, he directs Communion, a smart, dark drama about recovery and reconciliation. In this play, a troubled therapist gets involved in a strained relationship between a mother and daughter; the mother is a recovering alcoholic, and the daughter has dedicated herself to religious fervor. MacIvor's work bucks expectation and promises to be more than a conventional family drama — for starters, there are three complex roles for women.
