Proud On Now At Firehall Arts Centre Until April 26th

12 Apr


Proud is a play written by Michael Healey about the Right Honourable Stephen Harper.   Honestly, who knew Stephen Harper could be so funny! Certainly not I. To me and many others the man is somewhat devoid of personality. Yes he’s a numbers man and many that deal with numbers, can be a bit dry. OK I know this is a generalization. But a play about Stephen Harper, I must say I was intrigued.  Not my favourite person for many personal reasons, but maybe someone who has helped keep the boat afloat during recent economic turbulence.  The play is about the man himself, his right hand man and Chief of Staff, Cary and his new MP Jisbella Lyth.  You will be drawn in from the very first line. The show is hilarious, sexy, witty and foul mouthed at times.  No matter what your politics, there is something from everyone here. Jisbella played by Emmelia Gordon does an amazing job as the new MP and Andrew Wheeler plays an impeccable Stephen Harper. If there is a morale to this story, it would be vote!

Proud is now at the Firehall Arts Centre, 280 East Cordova Street, until April 26th Tuesday – Saturday 4:00 pm & 8:00 pm shows and Sunday shows at 2:00 pm. Tickets range from $15 – $30. There is also a 1:00 pm Pay What You Can Matinee on Wednesdays. If you wish to laugh out loud and be wickedly entertained, see Proud.
