Jackalope Theatre Company presents Naomi Wallace's SLAUGHTER CITY
Jackalope Theatre Company (JTC) is proud to announce the final play of its 2010-2011 season, Slaughter City, by renowned American playwright Naomi Wallace and directed by JTC Artistic Director, Kaiser Ahmed.

Inequalities between men and women, black and white, are coming to a head when two mysterious strangers arrive- one urging management to push the workers harder, the other joining with the union and inciting them to strike. The workers struggle with whether to obey the oppressive company that signs their checks, or their own animal instincts for freedom and for each other.

Slaughter City is inspired by the brutal, centuries-long struggle for workers rights in America. As we witness the events in Wisconsin and throughout the Midwest, and reflect on the passage of the 100-year anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire- the time could not be riper for Wallace's poetic tale of tumult in the meatpacking labor union of Slaughter City, USA.
