7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 18, 2024

Hyde Hall, Shanklin Theatre, University of Evansville Campus, 1800 Lincoln Ave, Evansville, IN

By Clifford Odets

Directed by Stacey Yen

Inspired by true events of a 1934 New York taxicab strike, this fictional retelling creates a powerful mosaic of the trials and tribulations of the working class.  First produced in 1935, this play made a sensation of its playwright, who became the theatrical conscience of a generation, and this work remains one of the most celebrated and significant plays of the American Theatre. With the fight for living wages and safe, equitable workplaces continuing to cause political debates, this seminal play illustrates the power of individual protest and the right to reform.  Grab your picket sign and get ready to march!
