A play about unions, treachery, walking, porta-potties, solidarity, walking, baked goods, and hope.
Vancouver-based professional actor Allan Morgan hit a dry spell and did what most actors do in that situation; he got another job. Allan took a position in the mail room of a union headquarters building. He enjoyed the experience and his colleagues, embracing his new role with the same enthusiasm that he had applied to his stage roles. But suddenly he and his colleagues were locked out by the union management. This is Allan’s personal story of the lockout and strike, and of keeping spirits up while soles, and souls, are fraying.
An Other Guys Theatre Company Production, I Walked the Line stars Allan Morgan and is directed by Ross Desprez. Set and costume design is by Margaret Handford with lighting design by R. Robinson Wilson, projections by John Carswell and audio design by Tobin Stokes. Sandy Cumberland is Stage Manager.
October 2020 will see a safe, socially distant run of I Walked the Line in Vancouver at the Firehall Arts Centre. Shows will run October 15-25.
