Maggie and Pierre
The Making of Canada's Most Famous Romance
July 7 - 30
By Linda Griffiths
Young Maggie Sinclair is a free spirited flowerchild. Pierre Trudeau is nearing 50, urbane, charismatic, and the future Prime Minister of Canada. When this unlikely pair finds one another, they fall in love, and dominate the international media for the next decade. This Canadian classic is a tour de force one-woman play about the pressures of power and fame under the media spotlight.
"Never false or facile, and always engaging."
