Maggie and Pierre

The Making of Canada's Most Famous Romance

July 7 - 30
Firehall Theatre




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."

    IN CONVERSATION WITH PAUL LITT, Author of Trudeaumania - Sunday, July 16 at 1pm

    Paul Litt is a Canadian historian who teaches in the Department of History and the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies at Carleton University. He researches and teaches on the media in politics, cultural nationalism, and collective memory.
