Please note, this event has expired.
Trouble Puppet Theater announce The Bomb in Haymarket Square by Connor Hopkins in the tradition of past award-winning Trouble Puppet productions such as Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and The Gunpowder Plot. Supported by the Jim Henson Foundation.
Presenting an elaborately staged theatrical exploration of a pivotal moment in history, performed with precise and expressive puppetry, media integration, and sing-alongs, The Bomb in Haymarket Square brings a largely overlooked event to light at a time when its relevance is grimly undeniable.
1886- A violent confrontation with police at a rally in Haymarket Square sparked the greatest Red Scare yet seen in the country, and its aftermath endures as a tragic example of justice miscarried.
