Margaret Trudeau: Certain Woman Of An Age

Mother of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Canadian icon and international mental health advocate Margaret Trudeau, will be bringing her critically-acclaimed, candid conversation Certain Woman of an Age to Just For Laughs this summer. The Second City proudly brings this one-of-a-kind engagement which is currently still in development, produced by Diane Alexander, directed by Kimberly Senior and co-written with Alix Sobler. Ms. Trudeau’s autobiographical one-woman show will feature an intimate conversation that follows her startlingly candid accounts of her wild child days, an isolated life as the prime minister’s wife, the tragic family events, and ultimately embracing a mental illness diagnosis are as surprisingly universal as they are extraordinary. Margaret is the author of four books, including her bestselling title, Changing My Mind, which charts her life’s ups and downs, and her latest title, The Time of Your Life, which offers women an inspirational and practical approach to creating a healthy, happy, secure, and satisfying future. Margaret sits on the Executive Advisory Board of the UBC Mental Health Institute as a community advocate, and she is the former Honorary President of WaterAid, a charitable Canadian non-governmental agency that is dedicated to helping poor communities in developing countries build sustainable water supply and sanitation services. This is an empowering opportunity to be part of living history that audiences of every generation will fall in love–and laugh along with. Margaret Trudeau’s Certain Woman of An Age will have a 3-night run at JFL this summer!

This show is a work in progress.
