Luba, Simply Luba Wins the 2014 Kobzar Literary Award

Congratulations to Diane Flacks, Luba Goy and Andrey Tarasiuk for their play Luba, Simply Luba winning the 2014 Kobzar Literary Award.

Luba Goy, an original member of Canada’s popular comedy troupe, Royal Canadian Air Farce, is one of this country’s most beloved comedic actors. In Luba, Simply Luba, we are invited into her colourful and astonishing life. From her Ukrainian childhood to high honours at Rideau Hall, Luba Goy’s journey has been filled with both comedy and tragedy. This one-woman show features glimpses of Luba at various ages along with forty-plus other characters–including her family and friends, Canadian prime ministers and other famous personalities, and even a few animals.

Luba, Simply Luba is by turns hilarious and heart-rending, an extraordinary theatrical experience.
