FABRIC, FLAMES AND FERVOR: GIRLS OF THE TRIANGLE
Looking for Lilith's collaboratively created play Fabric, Flames, and Fervor: Girls of the Triangle (formerly known as "The Triangle Project”), based on the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911 in New York City is available for touring. This show explores the lives of women and girls who were tragically killed in that garment factory fire, the ensuing trial against the owners, and how the labor rights movement was galvanized by this event, shortly thereafter drastically changing labor laws in the U.S.
Audiences described the play as excellent, fantastic, profoundly moving, informative, important, motivating, challenging, relevant, entertaining, clever, powerful, sad, emotional, educational, poetic and superb. Also shared were these comments - It stirred my anger at injustice and cruelty," "The heartwrenching content makes you think," and "Beautiful visuals, I want to see it again.
