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?

1979 is part of the Belfry's Mainstage subscription series. Save up to 44% with a season ticket package by calling the box office at 250-385-6815.
