MARSHALL BUTTON

Marshall Button developed the character Lucien based on his experiences working in the paper mill in his hometown of Dalhousie, NB, and is nearing 2000 performances of Lucien, from coast to coast in every Canadian province.

 


 

LUCIEN

Lucien, the opinionated North Shore mill-worker and New Brunswick’s Blue-Collar Philosopher has enjoyed a 25 year run since he first appeared in Fredericton, N.B. as part of a satirical Bicentennial revue, Maritime Mixed grill. The show now plays like a comedic period-piece, and reflects a time when jobs were plentiful, unions were strong and job security was not a dirty word.

 


 

LUCIEN’S LABOUR LOST

The sequel to Lucien premiered for Theatre New Brunswick in October of 1993. This second show has our anti-hero buying into Frank McKenna’s dream of a self-sufficient entrepreneurial work force, able to leap tall buildings at a single bound, while reflecting the downsizing trends of the early 1990’s. Lucien is over forty, and for the first time in his life, mortality is raising its profound head.

 


 

LUCIEN: SNOWBIRD

When a francophone mill worker from New Brunswick’s north shore heads to the sunshine state for some fun, his audience is left shaking with laughter at what might be described as a rare bird. With his character constantly butchering both of his country’s official languages, Button’s portrayal of the middle-aged, uneducated yet worldly wise Lucien is a laugh marathon from start to finish. This is one vacation you’ll be happy you took!

 


 

LUCIEN: HELTER SMELTER

Last seen as a Florida tourist, The New Brunswick mill worker Lucien returns to his North Shore roots where we find him smelt fishing in a colony of shanties on the Bay of Chaleur – still expounding on world issues, national crises, love, sex and politics. In his hilariously famous manner, Lucien is forced to ponder even bigger issues when global warming cuts his frozen shanty town loose and turns it into a floating state separating from Canada – heading towards Quebec, infinity and beyond.

All 4 shows are constantly evolving – as current affairs, politics and world events change, so does Lucien. Marshall Button can also be utilized as a comedic bilingual host.
