On May 4, 1886, Chicago saw the first dynamite bomb thrown in America, America's first Red Scare, and the first time people were tried for Conspiracy to Commit Murder without having ever caught the person who threw the bomb.
Bloody Haymarket,an original theatrical production, written and directed by Eric J. Coleman and David McGrath and produced by Ben David Garza, allows the audience to witness and actively participate in this riveting part of Chicago history all should know. Join us for the 130th anniversary of the Haymarket Affair.
This original theatrical production brings to life the time when working people fought for rights, immigrants fought for fairness, police brutality was rampant, politicians were blatantly corrupt, and....innocent men were put to death.
