Show Info

By J.J. Leppink
Directed by Laura Killeen
Performed by Lottie Walker 

For centuries women have stoked the fires of rebellion and change in the East End of London.
 
Sara Wesker was an ardent trade unionist organizer and activist who galvanized a traditionally compliant workforce. She marched in 1936, sang on the picket lines, and took part in the Battle of Cable Street against Oswald Mosley's Fascist Blackshirts. This is her story. 

Featuring protest songs sung by the “Singing Strikers of 1928,” Chopped Liver & Unions delves into Sara's personal story, how she worked hard, played hard, and remained committed to the fight for equality her entire life. A tale from a century ago but very much a play for today.
