From Montreal, the comedy capital of the world, comes a poignant and funny take on odious debts. The Dictatorship of Debt, is the result of a decade-old political theater tradition of the Montreal community where the Social Justice Committee (a 30+ year old Canadian human rights organization) has combined comedy and critique in this hilarious history of the global debt crisis to ask this essential question: who owes whom? Written and directed by McGill theatre student Danielle Boudreau, this political satire shows how the developing world has ended up where it is now – in 2.7 trillion dollars of debt – much of it “odious.” Critics are calling it “a lively, smart and very funny hour of satirical theatre.”
