April 19 - April 23

In the working-class town of Reading, Pennsylvania, a group of factory workers have been gathering at their favorite bar for years. Only now, amidst the rising tension of layoffs and labor disputes, relationships are tested, anthe bonds of friendship start to crack. Suddenly everyone is forced to grapple with the loss of heavy industry and the effect that a changing economic structure has on the world around them. Through powerful dialogue and relatable characters, Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play offers a deep examination on community, economics, and the struggle for stability in an increasingly unstable world.

Performances on Thursday April 20th and Friday April 21st will be jointly performed in Spoken English and American Sign Language in collaboration with students from UW-Milwaukee American Sign Language/English Interpreting Program.


This production contains mature language, themes, and depictions that families may find unsuitable for children. Examples include racial slurs, profanity, reference to drug use, intoxication, physical violence, derogatory language, sexual imagery, and ableist language/slurs.
