Industrial Valley



Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music
Organization: New World Performance Laboratory
Description: Industrial Valley is an ensemble-devised theatre performance based on one-time Beacon Journal reporter Ruth McKenney’s acclaimed 1939 account of class and industrial conflict in Akron, Ohio. NWPL, under the direction of co-artistic director and University of Akron theatre professor James Slowiak, brings to life Depression-era Akron and the labor movement. Malcolm Cowley called McKenney’s historical novel “the best American example of proletarian literature.” Industrial Valley: The Devil’s Milk, Part 3 is a stunning example of NWPL’s 25 year working process resulting in a dynamic theatre performance with music, songs, dances, and stories from Akron’s rubber workers. The NWPL ensemble consists of co-artistic director Jairo Cuesta and long-time company members and Akron residents Debora Totti, Justin Hale, and Chris Buck, with new members Rosilyn Jentner, Robert Keith, and Kyra Kelley. The performers are supported by resident costume designer Inda Blatch-Geib, resident set designer/technical director Kirsten Williams, resident lighting designer Chris Hariasz, and media designer/videographer David Cranston.

Tickets are $15 general and $10 for students. Seating is limited.
For tickets call 330-867-3299 or online.
Each performance will be followed by an audience engagement session.
