No reservations
General Admission by Donation

STRIKE 1929 is a new play by The Abbey Players' Director of Theatre Simon Donoghue. The piece examines the true story of the Loray Mill Strike through the eyes of the strikers, labor organizers, management, and the Gastonia Daily Gazette. Ninety years ago they all converged on Loray, and put the name of Gastonia in newspapers all over the world.  In this taut 40-minute play Donoghue imagines the major figures of this tragedy confronting each other—and the audience—about the oppression that sparked the strike by Loray Mill workers and the violence that effectively ended it.

*Post-show discussion led by Dr. Daniel Hutchinson, Chair, History Department, Belmont Abbey College
