"Maggie & Pierre...a fantasy of love, politics and the media -and Linda Griffiths' one-woman, three-man show, in which she plays the Prime Minister, Margaret Trudeau and a disillusioned reporter named Henry." (from back cover)
Linda Griffiths is a Canadian actress and playwright best known for the one woman play she wrote and starred in, Maggie & Pierre. The play, “delineates a battle between reason and passion in the lives of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and Maggie Sinclair when they met, fell in love, lived together in the public spotlight, had three children and broke up in an ugly and very public way. It takes place between 1974 and 1980. A newspaper reporter named Henry acts as choric commentator, voyeur, and liaison with the audience. All three roles were played by Griffiths.” (Canadian Theatre, 2021)
