Alberta Theatre Projects / 1979

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 colleagues… 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.

“This unbelievably funny play takes us inside the corridors of power to meet some fascinating figures in Canadian politics. No matter where you stand, or even if you don’t follow politics, you’ll relish these great characters and their sometimes questionable shenanigans.”

- Artistic Director, Vanessa Porteous
