"A dazzling night at the theatre ... Mac Fyfe seems to have been born to

play Pierre Trudeau ... one of the best shows that make up Michael Hollingsworth's

series The History of the Villageof the Small Huts." -Toronto Star

"Mac Fyfe's brilliant burlesque of Trudeau makes this production a must-see ... Yes, everyone should

bring their kids to see The History of the Village of the Small Huts and, if we're lucky, they'll be

able to bring their kids too, in another generation." -Globe and Mail

CANADA’S HISTORY PLAYS

The History of the Village of the Small Huts

The achievement of playwright Michael Hollingsworth MH in Canoe
and his celebrated ensemble of actors and designers is without precedent. Since 1985 they have created more than twenty plays whose stories arc over centuries of time, dramatising our history from Chief Donnacona and Jacques Cartier to Prime Minister Mulroney and President George Bush.

Internationally-renowned designers Astrid Janson and Andrew Moro use the most economical materials to produce spectacular effects of costume and light, enabling seven superb actors to portray dozens of characters who embody an era, who conjure the drama of the debates and compromises that forge a nation.

The Great War, 2010

VideoCabaret’s work is recognized by dozens of Dora Awards and scores of Nominations. In 2011, the Silver Ticket Award for outstanding contribution to the Canadian Theatre was given to Michael Hollingsworth by previous honourees. Last season’s The War of 1812 won Dora Awards for Acting Ensemble, Direction and Costume Design, and also earned nominations in the categories of Lighting, Sound and Production.

 

“Anyone who can make Canadian history this witty and amusing deserves a medal --
the Order of Canada perhaps?”

- Toronto Star

“VideoCabaret put the ‘story’ back into history, and the result is hilarious and irresistible.”
- CBC Radio

“VideoCabaret is a theatrical treasure.”
- Globe & Mail
