Up From the Ashes

Up From The Ashes takes the audience right to the fire. And not just to the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911 itself, but smack into the daily lives of those immigrant teengers who had to decide whether to burn or to jump...and helps ussee thru the eyes of the factory owners, the feisty union organizers, the witnesses to the infamous tragedy... A myriad of characters from history are played by Philadelphia favorite Isa St. Clair in a theatrical whirlwind, asking t he question: what has changed, and what has remained the same when it comes to workers rights? This new play by Kate McGrath, Philadelphia Dramatist Center playwright in residence this year, uses sound, music and projections to bring this ever-evolving issue to life and to bring you right into those moments of life-changing decision that haunt each and every one of us.
