Here is a bit about Main Stage West and "Mother Jones in Heaven":
Main Stage West strives to bring the highest quality theater to life, Sonoma County style! We provide resident artists, playwrights, and musicians with a place to create and produce quality plays, support artistic exchange, and allow local talent to shine as it brings forth new works. As we develop our reputation regionally, we would also like to send new, exciting, and relevant works out into the world. Mother Jones is one such work. To that end we are hosting a fundraiser to send our original, award winning play "Mother Jones In Heaven," to the Dublin Fringe Festival in September of this year.
MOTHER JONES IN HEAVEN
WRITTEN AND COMPOSED BY SI KAHN
Starring Mary Gannon Graham
Musical Direction by Jim Peterson
The indomitable Mary Gannon Graham meets the invincible Mother Jones in this new one-woman musical by the legendary singer/songwriter and activist, Si Kahn. Many people know the name Mother Jones, but most have no idea of the impact and power of her life story.
THE STORY: Mother Jones wakes up in heaven, which to her surprise and delight, turns out to be an Irish Pub. There she meets a trio of musicians who spend a power-packed evening recounting the events of her life through song and yarn.
Mary Harris Jones was born in 1830 in County Cork, Ireland. She lost her family to a yellow fever outbreak and her home in the great Chicago fire. She became a labor activist and was given the nickname "Mother Jones." She was a campaigner for the United Mine Workers Union, founded the Social Democratic Party and helped establish the Industrial Workers of the World. For all of her social reform and labor activities, she was considered by the authorities to be "the most dangerous woman in America."
