by Lisa Ramirez, directed by Lisa Peterson
What does it mean to struggle every day to support your family and preserve your dignity at the same time? This gripping play (formerly THE POULTRY PLAY) about immigrant women laboring in chicken processing plants is based on interviews Lisa Ramirez conducted with actual poultry plant workers in upstate New York.
