The Toronto Workers’ Theatre Group is a component of the Toronto Workers’ History Project. It is dedicated to producing short, original plays on the history of working people in Toronto, which are presented from time to time at the TWHP’s regular monthly meetings in the Steelworkers Hall. So far the group has staged five plays – on the impact of Russian Revolution, the fight for an OFL Women’s Committee, the battle against child labour, the Metro Days of Action, and the Toronto general strike of 1919. Creating and staging the plays is a collective process that brings together a rich diversity of writing, directing, and acting experience. In their performances the group aims at engaging and involving the audience in bring to life some dramatic moments in Toronto labour history. We are always looking for new members. Men and women. All ages. All backgrounds. For big parts and bit parts. No acting experience necessary. Great fun.
