The 1979 Group
Playwright(s): Michael Healey
In June of 1979, at the age of 39, Joe Clark became Canada’s 16th prime minister. By Christmas, it was all over. 1979 is a new comedy by Michael Healey (Proud, The Drawer Boy) that looks at Clark and the pressure he was under in the dying days of his government. Should he stick to his principles, or bend to remain in control? A hilarious play about trust, power, and ambition, in which a dozen characters are played by a skilled company of three actors.
I didn’t want it to end and I can hardly wait to see it again.
