The Triangle Factory Fire Project 

This creative piece uses eyewitness accounts, court transcripts and other archival material to create a dramatic moment-by-moment retelling of the historic 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in New York City that caused the death of 146 garment workers, mainly young immigrant girls.  

The play documents the social upheaval that followed, culminating in the manslaughter trial of the owners...the outcome of which inspired outrage across the country and set the stage for shaping American labor law for decades to
come. 

The play paints a heartbreakingly clear picture of a disastrous day in American history and explores the human toll such a tragedy takes on us all.
