At the dawn of America’s Industrial Revolution, young women known as “Mill Girls” flocked to Lowell, MA, from farms throughout New England, hoping to make a better life for themselves. What they found instead were 14-hour workdays, packed dormitories, and puritanical overseers who monitored their behavior around the clock.
“Factory Girls” will be performed Jan 26-30, 2011 at Pace’s Schaeberle Studio (41 Park Row; tenth floor) Thursday through Saturday at 8:00 pm, with weekend matinees on Saturday (2:00 pm) and Sunday (3:00 pm). Tickets: $12 for adults and $8 for students. To make reservations, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Pace University is staging a dramatic reading and sing-through this weekend of a new rock musical, “Factory Girls,” that recalls the history-making activism of young working women in the 1840s, who brought some of America’s first labor reforms to the textile mills of Lowell, Massachusetts… The result is dialog and song that are powerfully evocative of many of the same conflicts that still divide America today: social justice, financial inequality, and double-edged sword by which individuals working for a giant, impersonal corporation can feel both empowered and imprisoned.
