Shortly after the Conservatives win a majority government in the 2011 federal election, the prime minister discovers a secret weapon in his caucus—Jisbella Lyth, a single mother with a limited understanding of her role as an MP. Using her ignorance to his advantage, the PM hatches a plan to have Jisbella front and centre in a campaign of misdirection and distraction. Humorous and clever, Proud explores the corrosive nature of the politics of division.

Michael Healey performed in his first one-act play in 1996 as part of the Fringe Festival of Toronto. Since then, he has become an exceptional voice in Canadian theatre. With an outstanding breadth of work, Healey has won a number of awards as a playwright, including a Dora Mavor Moore Award, a Governor General's Literary Award, and a Chalmers Canadian Play Award. Healey is currently a playwright-in-residence at Tarragon Theatre.

"Deftly written and often laugh-out-loud funny, Healey's script keeps surprising us, taking unexpected turns both in its narrative and character development." - Jon Kaplan, Michael Healey wittily examines a prime minister who's more human than you'd expect

"PROUD is a wonderful combination of intelligence and humor." - Connie Meng, Theatre Review: Proud at Great Canadian Theatre Company

"Michael Healey's Proud is funny and foul-mouthed, yet surprisingly sweet." - J. Kelly Nestruck, Michael Healey's Proud is funny and foul-mouthed, yet surprisingly sweet

"...always sharp, and sometimes hilarious." - Robert Cushman, Theatre review: Michael Healey's Proud is a Pygmalion for the political age

"Proud is the portrait of a buttoned-up man seen at his most unbuttoned.... Arriving with a reputation as a controversial political exposé of our current Prime Minister, Proud does score some sharp, insightful satirical barbs at Harper’s expense. But Harper-haters be warned: this play humanizes the man." --Jerry Wasserman, The Province
