Trudeau StoriesOur Femmes Fatales Series featured Brooke Johnson in Trudeau Stories (a co-presentation with Presentation House) from November 9-13, 2010. For seven years, Ruby Slippers Theatre’s Femmes Fatales Series has showcased women theatre makers who create and perform their own work. These courageous heroines deftly transcend sexual stereotypes and theatrical expectations with their tour de force performance work. Past Fatales have included the incomparable Marie Brassard, Karen Hines, Denise Clark, Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg and Tracey Powers. The enigma of Pierre Elliott Trudeau is a bug Canadians will never fully get out of our system. His presence redefined a somewhat dowdy country in the eyes of the world, leaving us with a collective anxiety about whether we quite measured up. Brooke Johnson has captured this strange ambivalence in a beautiful one-woman show about her friendship with the just-retired PM when she was only 23.
A Beautiful View: National Showcase!
A Beautiful View – ReviewsThe reason that I go to the theatre is that I hope to have experiences like the one I had at A Beautiful View. – Colin Thomas, The Georgia Straight This stellar presentation is one of exhilaration; as live theatre so often proves, this is the stuff that dreams are made of. – Peter Birnie, The Vancouver Sun This is another witty, honest exploration of what it is to be human wrapped up in innovative metatheatrics. – Jo Ledingham, The Vancouver Courier
