ABOUT THE SHOW
What does an internationally-known, high-profile actor do when the biz hands him lemons? Turn the whole experience into theatre, of course.
Vancouver-based professional actor Allan Morgan hit a dry spell and did what most actors do in that situation; he got another job. I Walked the Line is an autobiographical 70-minute solo show encapsulating Morgan’s shift from unemployed “downtown gay actor guy” to real life suburban union hall mailroom clerk. Allan took a position in the mailroom of a union headquarters building. He enjoyed the experience and his colleagues, embracing his new role with the same enthusiasm and dedication that he had applied to his life in theatre productions. But suddenly he and his colleagues were locked out by the union management. This is Allan’s personal story of being locked out by a union, of the strike, and of his experiences in keeping spirits up while soles, and souls, are fraying.
Under the direction of Ross Desprez, this 70-minute production is the story of 132 days walking the line in sun and rain with Morgan’s new family of co-workers and friends. It is intimate, passionate play that takes us through those days – some dark, some light.
