by John Kearns, directed by Candace O'Neil Cihocki
In the coal mining towns of Pennsylvania, circa 1869, many Irish immigrants, dismayed at the brutal working conditions and the corrupt mine bosses (who usually had the local law and the courts in their back pockets), joined a secret society known as the Molly Maguires, which made their point via intimidation, violence, arson, and murder. Inspired by actual events, John Kearns's drama examines this period in history whose themes relate strongly to topical issues of today such as terrorism, immigration, corporate greed, and an inflammatory media..
