I Walked The Line (written and performed by Allan Morgan)
A Firehall Arts Centre Presentation
A play about unions, treachery, solidarity, porta potties, baked goods, and hope. Allan Morgan is a luminary of the Canadian stage, having spent a lifetime as a professional actor working with companies such as Bard on the Beach, Arts Club Theatre, Theatre Calgary, The Citadel, Touchstone Theatre, and more. When his acting career slowed down, he did what he had to do – he got another job, which landed him in the mailroom of a union headquarters. In July of 2016, the union went on strike and Allan found himself on the picket line with his union sisters and brothers, which was the impetus for I Walked The Line – a 70-minute performance that takes audiences on a roller coaster ride of emotions, transforming the stage to the picket line in celebration of that solidarity, the people, and the storm of emotions the fight for change brought to all those who walked the line for 132 days. Directed by Ross Desprez, I Walked The Line is produced by Bread and Roses Theatre and sponsored by The Other Guys Theatre.
