1979 an Enbridge New Canadian Play on at Alberta Theatre Projects


By Michael Healey
Directed by Miles Potter
This hilarious battle of wits is based on true events. The year is 1979, and our hero is Prime Minister Joe Clark: young, idealistic, and stubborn. He's in his office, deciding if he should put his first budget before Parliament. He knows that if he does he could lose everything. Everyone begs him not to do it: his wife, his colleaguesÂ… Brian Mulroney, Pierre Trudeau... They tell him he should pull some strings, make some deals. Compromise.
But like we said, he's stubborn.
This sparkling and rowdy political comedy is a hugely relevant debate about leadership and power.
