Globe and Mail critic Herbert Whittaker calls the production "a glittering polemic of a play" and "the most impressive production of an original work staged by Leon Major in his years as ar- tistic director of the St. Lawrence Centre." In the play, played by Kenneth Progue, the prime minister is the lone survivor of a plane crash on a deserted arctic island, a location suitable in its isolation for the process of self examination he is to undergo. Davies supplies two characters as guides to the PM in the wanderings of his mind. They are a shaman with a Scottish accent, Stephen Markle, and an Eskimo nurse, Diana Barrington. Other persons materializing as the prime minister's mind wanders are sometimes sym- bolic, sometimes members of the public or of the prime minister's party. A major confrontation in the unfolding of the prime minister's Ques- tion Time is a mock Parlia- ment on ice. CBC's real life anchorman Lloyd Robertson appears periodically via a large movie screen to keep the audience in touch with reaction back in Ottawa to the prime minister's disappearance. Mr. Whittaker says the play provides "considerable evidence of the shoddiness of Canadian politics" and that Davies "testily lambasts a number of national quirks and convictions." But he says Davies' major point is interrupted by a satire on the adequacy of the beaver as a national symbol. TV highlights THURSDAY VARIETY: Cher, p.m., Ch. 13.
