MONTREAL — Margaret Trudeau is bringing her autobiographical one-woman show to Montreal this summer.

The performance titled “Certain Woman of an Age” will have a three-night run at the Just For Laughs festival in late July.

The show is billed as a candid conversation in which Trudeau recounts her “wild child days,” her “isolated life” as wife to prime minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau, family tragedy and struggles with mental illness.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other family members saw her performance at Chicago’s Second City earlier this month.

“Certain Woman of an Age” will be staged at Montreal’s Gesu theatre on July 25, 26 and 27.
