VideoCabaret spectacularly conjures the era of Confederation in four tragicomic one-act plays, presented in two parts. Confederation: John A. Macdonald masterminds the deal-making that leads to the fireworks on July 1, 1867. In a Montreal hotbed of anti-confederationist, Wilfrid Laurier meets Louis Riel. Riel: Macdonald plans to turn the west into one big Ontario. Riel and Metis leaders collide with surveyors, and religious radicals plot terror; Laurier is spurred to act on his multi-cultural and secular ideals.
