On May 4, 1886, Chicago was rocked by the first dynamite bomb thrown in America.

This epic period piece deals with everything from the struggle for the eight hour workday, the plight of the immigrant, interracial marriage, a corrupt Justice system, police brutality,  the origin of May Day, the concentration of wealth in a few hands, and an utter disregard of the Constitution of this land. 

Come be a part of this revolutionary theatrical performance!

 Bloody Haymarket is a full sensory experience! Join us for the 130th anniversary of the Haymarket Affair.

Shows run April 30th,  May 4th, May 7th, May 14th, May 21st, and closing night May 28th @ 8pm.
