Proud (print)

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.

“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, NOW Magazine

“...funny and foul-mouthed, yet surprisingly sweet.” —J. Kelly Nestruck, The Globe and Mail
