Previews start November 2 for VideoCabaret’s The Life and Times of Mackenzie King, The History of the Village of the Small Huts, 1918-39 at The Cameron House, opening on November 10 for a limited run.
Written by the award-winning co-Artistic Director VideoCabaret, Michael Hollingsworth, his History Plays always bring the past to vivid life, and simultaneously remind us of today’s headlines. The Life and Times of Mackenzie King spans the Roaring Twenties and Dirty Thirties, and resonates powerfully in our boom/bust times. The play stars Canada’s most eccentric and enduring Prime Minister, and features a panoramic cast of power-brokers, war vets, socialites, fascists, communists, gangsters, work-camp hobos, crystal ball readers, booze-smugglers, and other Canadians.
