"When we got to the rooftop and sat down, he ordered a half bottle of white wine, dug into the plastic bag and pulled out a tiny book of Shakespeare's sonnets. Inside was written Pierre Elliott, 1968. 'Somebody gave it to me on my first Christmas as Prime Minister. I wrote an inscription in it, so no one would think you'd stolen it...'For Brooke, for her birthday--And the best of memories, Pierre E.T. 1987"
In 1985, while a student at the National Theatre School of Canada, Brooke Johnson became friends with Pierre Elliott Trudeau. In her solo play, Brooke brings to life the story of this surprising friendship. At once vital and charming, poignant and very funny, Trudeau Stories is about friendship and loss and about who the heck we think we are.
