About this show

"Mark Twain says that history doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme," according to Mother Jones, as brought to life by OBIE Award winner Kaiulani Lee in this brave new work about the formative days of the American labor movement. Called "the most dangerous woman in America," Mother Jones "educated, agitated and organized" on behalf of child laborers, coal miners, steel workers and all working people. Through an artful blend of history, biography and a liberal dose of Mother Jones' famous wit, Can't Scare Me brings out some urgent "rhymes" of yesterday and today in a riveting, passionate and fiery solo performance.
