|Welcome To Stage Left Theater!|
By Dereck Goldman and Jessica Thebus
Directed by Christopher Lamb
October 16 - November 1, 2015
During the mid-1800's, unfair and dangerous work conditions sparked labor struggles and Chicago was ablaze. The Haymarket Riot and the subsequential trial was the focus of the nation. With this tumultuous period blazing around them, a young couple dares to fall in love. But the infamous bombing at a labor rally in Haymarket Square forces the reporter to investigate the wrongfully convicted bombers. The lives of eight men are in the balance and this reporter puts his life on the line to try and clear their names.
Our group is founded on the belief that live theater provides a mechanism for interpersonal interaction not provided by television and movies, that it should be a force for political, intellectual and social stimulation, and should be relevant to the daily lives of the audience and the players. We seek to broaden the involvement of the general population by engaging issues of topical value and stimulating the analysis and discussion of the structure and goals of society.
