The Bottle Picker Monologues

The Homestretch

Bottle pickers don't always get a lot of love in Calgary. But there's more to the people salvaging bottles and cans from back alleys than meets the eye. Nigel Kirk is a former bottle-picker. He wanted to share the stories and experiences of his community, so he teamed up with Downstage Theatre and project coordinator Lara Schmitz and created 'The Bottle Picker Monologues.' The show will be performed -- with a Christmas FLARE -- on December 13th at the New Central Library. Nigel and Lara joined host Doug Dirks in studio.
