The Rise and Fall of Lucien

By & Starring Marshall Button

October 3 - 6

Thirty years in the making, this hilarious look back at the life and times of Canada’s funniest millworker features brand new material with excerpts from four Lucien plays spanning 1986 to 2019. Never afraid to give his unique take on politics, love, life and everything in between, audience favourite Marshall Button created the character of Lucien in the early 1980’s while working in the paper mill in his hometown of Dalhousie, New Brunswick. This show tells the story of a small town that relied on a paper mill for its existence and, as the downsizing and eventual closing of the mill went, so went the fortunes of the town and its people. For more than three decades, Lucien has performed to sold-out audiences over 2,500 times from Upper Canada Playhouse to the Yukon and Afghanistan.
