Denver Ludlow Centenary

More events will be announced here.

Ludlow, 1914 title image

We are told the following play will be produced sometime in the Spring of 2015.

Sep 11–28, 2014 – Ludlow, 1914, a play created by Brian Freeland and the LIDA Project, performed at TheatreWorks in Colorado Springs. From the production’s website: “TheatreWorks decided early on they did not want to create merely a piece of documentary theatre. Instead, the idea was to create a more stylized, imaginative and theatrical representation. So Ross invited Brian Freeland and Denver’s LIDA Project to create the new production. ‘LIDA has a long history of making fascinating new work,’ Murray Ross said, ‘and we thought they would be the ideal creators of this new adventure.’ The result promises to be a whirlwind of theatrical invention, as history, tragedy, vaudeville, and modern technology converge in the theater’s flexible space.”

Joe Hill Lives…

In August 2011, we held a successful Tribute to Joe Hill featuring a concert by John McCutcheon, with local folk artist Elena Klaver, and also featuring films, poetry and song.

The tribute coincided with the release of a new book by our good friend, and Denver author, Bill Adler that rips open the case against Joe and presents the whole IWW history of the period between the founding of the union in 1905 and Joe’s execution in 1915, and more, and does so excellently. See the official book website.

Bill Adler embarked on a book-signing tour of Washington DC, New York, Brooklyn, Detroit, Ann Arbor, Madison, Minneapolis, Missoula (x2), Portland (x2), Seattle (x2), Rossland BC, Eugene, Park City and Salt Lake City, Berkeley, San Francisco, Corte Madera, San Pedro, La Jolla, Venice CA, Claremont, Tucson, Austin, and more. It’s all listed on the book website.

Our activities at Bread and Roses Workers’s Cultural Center kicked off what will be several years of activity around Joe leading up to the centennial anniversary of his death in 2015. We may have lined up a major promoter and thereby a major concert to go along with films, documentaries, perhaps a musical play, poetry and the book signing. We will need a great deal of help on this, especially publicity/media and outreach, and this may be an opportunity to raise significant funds to develop Bread and Roses projects in Joe’s memory. This could be a corner-turner in making our Center a force for working class self-activity and -development: join in! Contact us here.
