It's the late 1960s.

19 year old Maggie Sinclair is a hippie free spirit, born out of love, socialism and a lot of dope.

Pierre Trudeau is nearing 50, urbane, charismatic and soon-to-be elected as Prime Minister of Canada.

Reason and passion soon collide as they meet, fall in love, marry, live together in the public spotlight, have three children, and break up in a very ugly and very public way.

A tour de force one-woman play about the pressures of power and fame under the media spotlight.

“Ambitious attempt to explore the personal fissures that politics creates... Burke is utterly convincing and charming as Maggie. ”

Miriam Gillinson (Arts Desk, Time Out)

“Flickers into life only when we hear her describe the moment when she fell for Pierre. Otherwise, disappointing. ”

Quentin Letts (Daily Mail)
