A portrait of a new America

For a group of lifelong friends, a night at the local bar is the balm against a hard day on the factory lines. When tensions rise at work and picket lines are formed, their bonds wear and the strength of their connection is tested in the struggle to stay ahead. See all sides in this powerful examination of a community that is formed and dissolved amidst the changing landscape of America.

Running time: Approx. 2 hour and 35 minutes, with one intermission

In partnership with Citadel Theatre

“A tough yet empathetic portrait of the America that came undone” —The New Yorker

Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
