Playwright Mike Broemmel teams up with director and playwright Jennifer Dempsey to create a compelling script chronicling the incredible life of union organizer, human rights activist, and all-around hell-raiser, Mother Jones.
Award-winning actor Jan Justis stars in the one-woman show that takes the audience through Jones’ life from her birth in Cork, Ireland, her marriage and motherhood, cut short by a yellow fever epidemic in Memphis, Tennessee, through the Chicago fire of 1871, and her reinvention of herself as a union organizer and proponent of worker rights and the abolition of child labor including her participation in the 1886 Haymarket Riot, 1903 March of the Mill Children to Colorado’s 1914 Ludlow Massacre.
Mother! enjoyed its world premiere in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The premiere proves that compelling live theatre can be staged safely.
Stand Still & Look Stupid: The Life Story of Hedy Lamarr by Mike Broemmel was a featured theatre production at Féile an Phobail 2019 (Festival of the People), the largest arts festival in Ireland.
