During the Great Depression, the sleepy town of Crosby, Minnesota unexpectedly elected America's first Communist mayor. "We cannot fail," Karl Emil Nygard declared! A year later, he had failed. The revolution fizzled, and the good citizens of Crosby very prudently stopped talking about the whole thing. From the playwright behind HATCHET LADY comes this Prairie Home-alternative radio drama about proper Minnesotans, how to be a good radical, and the somewhat-true history of our first Red Mayor.
Red Mayor contains adult language and examples of passive-aggressive behavior. Please contact us with any specific questions about content.
