Now is the perfect time to capitalize on the public’s enduring interest in the Trudeau family! 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. Given the public’s longstanding fascination with PET, and its newfound interest in our current prime minister, this show boasts wide appeal across multiple generations.
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
