Haymarket

Show Information

Haymarket, first presented by Underscore under the title Haymarket: the Anarchist's Songbook in 2016 to critical and audience acclaim, is back, with a vengeance. Having spent the last two years workshopping the show, the authors Higgin-Houser and Kornfeld alongside director Nick Thornton and musical director Robert Ollis have crafted an all-new theatrical experience, creating new songs, overhauling the book, and like the union workers from the show, building anew. ​ Based on historical events, Haymarket tells the dramatic story of labor unrest in Chicago, 1886, where striking workers clashed with a brutal police force, resulting in an act of terror, a corrupt trial, and the death of five innocent men. Told by a cast of twelve actor-instrumentalists, Haymarket is a folk, bluegrass, and Americana adventure, led by Lucy Parsons, the African American firebrand and wife of one of the accused anarchists.
