WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Sons of Molly Maguire takes place in the small coal mining towns of Pennsylvania circa 1869. First-generation Irish American Jack Kilbride, dismayed at the brutal working conditions and the corrupt mine bosses (who usually had the local law and the courts in their back pockets) joins a secret society known as the Molly Maguires: a group who made their point via intimidation, violence, arson, and murder. However, those in power would not sit still for these methods for long, and schemes are hatched to destroy the society via the power of the yellow press and, more insidiously, by a betrayal from within. Inspired by actual events still remembered today. This production is part of the Eighth Annual Midtown International Theater Festival.
