Play: Pray for the Dead-A Musical Tale of Morgues, Moguls and Mutiny

August 23, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$15 – $25

Pray for The DeadPray for the Dead is an experiment in theater. It is a new play for and about workers and unions, written for folks who mostly don’t go to mainstream theaters. It tackles the issues being raised in our unprecedented 2016 presidential campaign about inequality and corporate and political corruption. The play was written by Gene Bruskin who spent 40 years building the US labor movement.

This summer, Pray for the Dead will finish off a series of performances for union audiences. You are invited to join us for our first public reading at Busboys & Poets!

You must RSVP to attend. Tickets are being given for a sliding scale donation of $15-$25. We can keep the momentum going solely thanks to your generous support.

Dinner Theater; Busboys & Poets Bread and Roses Labor Series. Co-sponsored by the Institute for Policy Studies.
