Preview Performance April 6

Back by popular demand!  October 1962.  Soviet ships are charging the American blockade around Cuba. The world is on the brink of thermonuclear war. Meanwhile, in Canada, Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker, is enjoying a majority government, popularity and a lovely fall day picking flowers with his wife.  All that changes with the arrival of a personal letter from J.F. Kennedy.

Join Dief as he navigates his way through the ultimate crisis that could see neighbours on both sides fight a nuclear war with Canada, literally in the middle. The personal cost to him will be great as he deals with a demanding President, a divided cabinet, and a fierce opposition.

From Pierre Brault, the multi-award winning creator of Will Somers: Keeping Your Head, The Last Spartan, Blood on the Moon and Portrait of an Unidentified Man.
