saint joan of the stockyards
by Bertolt Brecht | MAY 4-6, 2017 | 8PM | ROBLE STUDIO THEATERDirected by Jessi Piggott
Boom, bust and blood. Bertolt Brecht’s Saint Joan of the Stockyards chronicles the social worker Joan Dark’s futile battle with the gruesome corruption of the meatpacking industry. Charity and good will are no match for the all-conquering machinery of capital as it devours cattle and workers alike. Featuring an all-women cast and a riot grrrl punk chorus, this production splatters audiences with the raw, extreme horror of economic and environmental injustices, just as fresh (or rotten) now as they were when the play was written in 1931.
