Less than a hundred years ago, two million American children worked countless hours for as little 10 cents a day—their parents worked in coalmines and textile mills with no job security, few protections and no legal right to organize. Thankfully much has changed, but far too few of us remember how. One of the principal catalysts for change was an Irish-American firebrand named Mother Jones. Obie Award winner Kaiulani Lee brings Mother Jones to life. The play is drawn from documents including Mother Jones’ autobiography, her letters, speeches, interviews and transcripts.
