Returning for a third year, Words in Motion announces summer and fall performances of Memory in the Mud, a roving play that celebrates the lives of people who helped build Toronto in her early days.

In partnership with Evergreen Brick Works, Words in Motion has discovered and interpreted the stories of several fascinating yet unrecognized Canadians who at one time or another, worked or lived at the Brick Works.

“Memory in the Mud; Moving play captures fascinating history of the BrickWorks.”

– East York Minor

“The best thing about this show is adults can have fun too, in fact both the kids and adults really seemed to enjoy the show.”
-Mooney on Theatre

Audiences leave the presentation with a greater appreciation of where the bricks of Toronto’s most significant buildings came from, and of the hardships and challenges endured in producing them. A production that has been a success in the past promises to be even more engaging this year by featuring more of the original historic architecture in the staging.
