90 minutes

Rehearsed & performed at the height of the pandemic!

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. Directed by multi-award-winning Zach Fraser and showcasing Ellen David and Brian Dooley, two celebrated stars of the Montreal theatre scene, and presented in association with KIN Experience, King of Canada was streamed live online, November 6th @ 7:30PM and November 8th @ 2PM.
