“A celebration of the human spirit…”—Calgary Sun
Immerse yourself in the incredible story of Maurice Ruddick, “the singing miner,” an African Canadian who survived nine days underground during the historic Springhill mining disaster of 1958. This multi-award-winning one-man show recalls the events during the disaster, the effect it had on the rural Canadian community, and the racial tension that grew from it. The play is a celebration of hope, courage, and community.

Audience Advisory: This performance contains mature and racially charged language. Theatrical devices such as water-based fog and haze and flashing lights may occur.
