Toronto Workers’ Theatre Group

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.

So far, the group has staged seven plays – on the impact of the 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, Emma Goldman’s last visit to Toronto, and the Housewives Consumer Association in Toronto.

Creating and staging the plays is a collective process that brings together a rich diversity of writing, directing, and acting experiences. In their performances, the group aims to engage and involve the audience in order to bring to life some dramatic moments in Toronto’s 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 is necessary. Great fun.
