In 2004 Tommy Douglas was voted the Greatest Canadian in a nation-wide CBC poll. Actor John Nolan brings the father of Medicare and leader of the CCF to life on the stage. This theatre performance is infused with the beliefs, passions, battles, dreams and humanitarian accomplishments of a man who spent 44 years as premier of Saskatchewan and a member of parliament. With humour and anecdotes, speeches and poems, recollections of the past, attention to the present and consideration of the future, this is Tommy Douglas – raw and refined and masterfully unplugged.
“I marvel at the brilliant characterization of Tommy Douglas delivered at a level beyond any I have ever had the pleasure to witness.” – Lorne Clavert, former Premier of Saskatchewan
