ABOUT THE SHOW
Cynthia shocks her friends, a group of factory workers in Redding, PA by applying for a position in the factory’s management. Globalization and automation bring massive cuts to the factory, unraveling decades old friendships and exposing the racial fault lines of the town. Can the union strike hold or will everyone have to fend for themselves? This heart-wrenching portrait of the human cost of the decline in manufacturing shines a light on working class communities that often feel left behind. Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
