On the Line by Joe Roland

March 1-5, 2017
Black Box production - Campus Center, CC 242 - Regional Premiere
Directed by Kathy Hendrickson

Three lifelong friends take on management, the union, and ultimately each other when a strike wreaks havoc on their working-class town. Along the way they have to negotiate mobs of angry first-graders, bat-wielding bartenders, no-neck corporate shills, and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Lines are drawn, crossed, and double-crossed in this raw, powerful and often hilarious story about loyalty, love and the crippling power of unbending principles. New York playwright Joe Roland will be in residency at NHCC during the rehearsal process to workshop and adapt the play with the cast and crew, and to moderate talk backs after all performances.
Please note: Contains strong language.
