King of Canada

2020-11-03 - 2020-11-08

Written by Paul Van Dyck
Directed by Zach Fraser
Starring Ellen David and Brian Dooley

King of Canada is a meta-theatrical political comedy with two actors: a woman and a man. The man plays William Lyon Mackenzie King and the woman plays everybody else; close to forty other characters including King’s mother, FDR, Churchill, Hitler, and three Irish terriers named Pat. Through vaudevillian charm and the art of the buffoon, King of Canada reveals how Canadian politics have often been (and still are) a balancing act between what should be done for the good of all and what is done to maintain power.
