Today, my boss fired me because of my drinking problem. The reason he thinks I have a drinking problem? I was in a play he saw, in which I played a drunk person. I've been completely sober my whole life. FML

Preeeetty sure there's some lines for wrongful termination in there. Yeah it'd suck to go back and he'd be out to get you (Or already has been) but it would be a job until you found another!

I mean, OP might have taken acting lessons or something. I’m not quite old enough to drink and I’ve messed around with friends who said I acted drunk. It’s not terribly hard, and I’m sure OP is so much better than I am.

Being sleep deprived has many of the same effects. It is possible but I feel like there is more to the story. Like they were so sleep deprived they thought they were drunk. I find it hard to belive that just based on the play alone that was enough to get fired.

A: Your boss is majorly fucked in the head if they are holding the actions of a fictional character against the real person who played them. Does he think Keanu Reeves is really a mass murderer because of John Wick? Shit.
B: This is one hundred percent an illegal reason to fire someone. Even if you can't afford a lawyer, talking to one about the potential case is free and many will take on a solid case for a % of the winnings or something like that, so you should at least look into it.
