Everett playwright Dave Christie’s tribute to Mother Mary Harris Jones to be performed
denisegl | August 22, 2010 | 12:10 pm

Local playwright Dave Christie’s captivating retelling of history titled The Most Dangerous Women in America will be performed by Therese Diekhans on September 10-11, 7:30pm at 3231 Creatives 3231 Broadway. “Saddle up for David Christie’s smartly-written one woman show about hell-raising Mother Mary Harris Jones. Therese Diekhans’ charming, studied performance playfully brings to life fifteen characters, from children mill workers to John D. Rockefeller, as the audience learns the true cost of Big Business cost-cutting in early 20th century mining towns. Mother Jones’ rallying speeches on apathy and revolution are particularly poignant amidst contemporary woes, while original music by Jerry Reynolds and clear, active direction by Carol Roscoe maintain an environment of engaging theatricality.”  The playwright, Dave Christie, is an alumni of Berkeley in the 60’s, and makes his home in Everett.  He is an artisan/crafter at the Pike Place Market and an ardent union supporter.
