For more than a decade, a pyramid of Seagram’s barrels sat at the corner of Erb and Caroline Street in downtown Waterloo. In August 2009, the landmark barrels went up for grabs. Within hours, the kegs had found new homes but left many questions. What happened to them? Where did they go? Who are the new owners?
While the wooden slats and metal rings may be scattered all over the county, their memory remains rooted in the local community.
Over the next few months, Pat the Dog Playwright Centre will gather stories, take pictures and cooper a play about these historic kegs. The results? The Barrel Project: A multi-media collective theatre piece for the entire community.
But we can’t do it alone. If you own or owned one (or more) of the authentic Seagram barrels, we’re looking for you.
