The Life and Times of Brian Mulroney premiered March 1999 at the Factory Studio Theatre, and was presented in association with Factory Theatre.
The Life and Times of Brian Mulroney tells the story of the American conquest of Canada, a battle waged by the Reagan-Bush administration, backed by US and global corporations, fervently supported by Canada's branch-plant tycoons and their handpicked spear-carrier, Brian Mulroney.
"I would have been the first with my nose in the trough..." -Brian Mulroney
Brian Mulroney's friendship with Ronald Reagan and George Bush personifies Canada's role in the New World Order. The play's action follows the events that shaped the Mulroney Legacy – Free Trade, NAFTA, GST, Meech Lake and Charlottetown Accords, Preston Manning, Lucien Bouchard, bankruptcies, unemployment, public debt and a torn safety net – and their effect on the political class, the chattering class and the working class.
"Give us twenty years and you won't recognize this country..." - Brian Mulroney
