Going Dark

LESTER PEARSON

Swift caribou? No, that won't do.

A loon? (Aside) won't fly in Saskatoon.

A noble beaver on a rocky crag--

That's it!

CHORUS OF LEGISLATIVE AIDES

--what, Mike?

LESTER PEARSON

(Pianissimo) A vision of our flag!

Inform Richard that the stage is not in fact built to hold a chorus of thirty Mounties on horseback

Try not to think about why he's wearing that horrible scarf

Jesus, that's Darren's scarf; are they sleeping together?

Convince Darren that new fire safety regulations mean no more fucking pyrotechnics, ever

Forge fire marshal letterhead?

Personally destroy all pyrotechnic capabilities after hours tonight

Ask Richard what he means by "custom-built fog machine," ask re: budget

Inform them once AGAIN re: Mounties on stage

Nope, fog machines can't do that

Ask re: lighting/sound cues for finale

For example, according to script, final number begins with Diefenbaker alone downstage center, lit by a spotlight while he sings "Once Your Dief,

Once Your Chief (But No More)" until the Angel of History is flown in over the audience, then blackout as they embrace.
