Trudeau Stories
Written and performed by Brooke Johnson
May 9-13th, 2018

This charming and funny play is based on writer-performer Brooke Johnson’s unusual friendship with Pierre Elliott Trudeau, which began when she was a student at the National Theatre School in Montreal. Through reminiscences, journal entries and correspondence, Brooke offers delightful insights into the private life of a complex man, alongside her own poignant reflections about the power of an unexpected friendship.

A lush and intricate script…a remarkable theatre experience.
– Lennie MacPherson, The Guardian

An unexpectedly engaging memoir…like turning the pages of a live snapshot album…it’s delightful.
– Robert Cushman, National Post

This is a winner. Trudeau Stories is a portrait of a shared friendship, of poetry, of theatre, of life itself.  
– John Coulbourn, Toronto Sun
