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...
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.
Emotionally charged and full of Humanity, Isa St. Clair brings to life leaders from the period and victims of the fire supported by a magical sound pdesign by Luke Moyer. Up From the Ashes is a hopeful, empowering reflection on one of America's createst tragedies.
