About Mill Girls:
Octavia, Hannah, and other girls from dissimilar backgrounds are thrust into the American industrial revolution of the 1840s when they take on jobs in a New England mill. There they discover the unique rewards of factory work, as Hannah earns money to send her brother to Harvard, while Octavia saves for her own tuition. As Irish immigration provides a wave of cheap labor to the mills, wage cuts and miserable working conditions become the norm — but the mill girls are determined to gain reasonable pay and conditions. With compelling characters and theatrical staging, the play brings history vividly to life
The play will run approximately 40 minutes and tickets are not required. Donations are accepted and are greatly appreciated though!
