Nothing to Lose

By David Fennario

It is 1976. In a tavern in the Point Saint Charles working class district of Montreal, three friends gather on their lunch hour and reminisce about the past. They are survivors of a decade. One is Jerry Nines, a writer who has had some success, having written a novel and a hit play. The others are Jackie Robinson and Frank Saladini, old friends of Jerry’s from the Point. They work in a warehouse across the street. During the course of their reunion, Jackie leaves his truck parked at the loading dock of the warehouse and fights the foreman, actions which precipitate a worker’s sit-down strike which David Fennario uses as a demand for workers’ control of industry.

Cast of 9 men.
