A sharp comedy about backroom politics.
In June of 1979, Joe Clark was sworn in as Canada’s youngest Prime Minister. By Christmas, it looked as though it could be all over. 1979 is a comedy by Michael Healey (Proud, The Drawer Boy) that looks at Clark and the pressure he was under to save his government. Everyone – friends, foes, family – has an opinion about what Joe should do. Should he play the game and remain in power, or do what he thinks is right?
Politics can be nasty; in Michael Healey’s hands, they can be very funny, too. Characters such as Pierre Trudeau, Brian Mulroney, Maureen McTeer, and even a very young Stephen Harper come tumbling through the revolving door of the Prime Minister’s Office. But what I really love is the tension between principles and politics in this play, making it incredibly apt for these times.
To help young parents experience the Belfry, we offer inexpensive tickets and free childcare (for children aged 3 – 10) for young families on select weekend afternoons.
Your children will be looked after by a trained, professional ECE, only a short stroll away from the theatre.
You can sign your children up when you buy individual tickets for any of these shows, or as part of a season ticket package. Childcare space must be reserved in advance, at least 1 week prior to your chosen performance.
Plans change? You can swap between matinees within the same show, or give your ticket and childcare spot to another parent friend – simply let us know by the Friday before your performance.
To learn more, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the box office at 250-385-6815 to reserve your tickets and free childcare.
