Out of This Furnace: The Play

I am really happy to announce this item.

The Unseam’d Shakespeare Company in Pittsburgh, PA is presenting “Out of This Furnace” a play by Andy Wolk and directed by Marci Woodruff, June 12-June 28, 2008 (Wed-Saturday 8 pm, Sunday 4 pm) Open Stage Theatre (2835 Smallman Street, in the Strip District)
Tickets: www.proartstickets.org, 412.394.3353.

Across three generations, one family struggles to build a life in the shadow of Carnegie’s first mill. A dramatic adaptation of Thomas Bell’s intimate tale of immigrants, labor, and the rise of unions in Braddock, PA–a revival of the production created in the 1970’s by Pittsburgh’s theatre for working-class audiences—the Iron Clad Agreement.

I am honored to have been asked to talk about my book Three Slovak Women (which I was inspired to write after reading Bell’s novel), before the 4 p.m. performance on Sunday, June 22nd.

This will be a great afternoon to celebrate Slovak heritage!
