TRUDEAU STORIES Pierre Elliot Trudeau is a man that elicits a strong opinion, memory, or emotion. There have been many documentaries. One famous eulogy. But is there more to his story? Enter Brooke Johnson, writer and actress of a one-woman show that transports the audience to 1985, Montreal. She was a student. He was no longer Prime Minister. A crossing of paths. An unexpected friendship. Delve into a personal night of reminiscences, journal entries, and correspondence between two unlikely friends. A story that takes us beyond the headlines, painting a never before seen portrait of Trudeau in the Autumn of his life. No Speeches. No Pirouettes. But definitely a few surprises....as one would expect from the man himself.
“...[an] unexpectedly engaging memoir...like turning the pages of a live snapshot album...a maximum of craft but a minimum of artifice...it’s delightful.” – Robert Cushman, National Post
