King of Canada – World Premiere
Infinithéâtre is thrilled to welcome you home to the theatre with the world premiere of Paul Van Dyck’s tragicomic “King of Canada”!
Recently included as part of our “Infinite Playwrights’ Chat Room” series, “King of Canada” is a meta-theatrical political satire that puts William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canada’s longest-serving prime minister, under the microscope. Part séance, part trial, the man and his actions are put to judgement. And with him, the actions of our nation. A look at the power of one, lifted by the will of many.
Ellen David and Brian Dooley, two celebrated stars of the Montreal theatre scene, perform in this playful yet biting examination of legacy. Dooley incarnates King, David brings many others to life; close to forty other characters including King’s mother, FDR, Churchill, Hitler, and three Irish terriers named Pat.
“King of Canada” will run from October 20th to November 1st at KIN Gallery. Tickets are limited, with a maximum audience size of 20 patrons per performance.
