A one-woman show chronicling the relationship that shaped a modern nation, Maggie and Pierre presents an idealized society with Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau as the philosopher king of Canada, Margaret Trudeau as his flower-child wife and journalist Henry as the disillusioned reporter. Within this triangle of classic archetypes, personal love vies with love of country and passion challenges reason, steering a nation’s history. Winner of the first Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play, this inspired story still crackles with the energy that took the country by storm at the height of the Trudeaus’ popularity.
