Walterdale Theatre presents THE TRIANGLE FACTORY FIRE PROJECT
by Christopher Piehler in collaboration with Scott Alan Evans
October 10-20, 2018
Director: Barb Mah


March 25, 1911. 4:45 P.M. a brutal fire erupts in In the Triangle Waist Factory off downtown Manhattan’s Washington Square. The culprit, a cigarette tossed into a bin of fabric scraps. Despite desperate efforts, flames sweep through the eighth, ninth and tenth floors. Panic-stricken workers of all different backgrounds, cultures, ethnicity and communities run in all directions. On the ninth floor, some make it to the fire escape, some do not. Some are trapped, locked, their fates sealed. THE TRIANGLE FACTORY FIRE PROJECT uses eyewitness accounts, court transcripts and other archival material to create a dramatic moment-by-moment account of this historic fire and the social upheaval that followed.

The first Thursday of the run is 2-for-1 (at the door only).
Tuesday, Oct 16 is Pay What You Can At The Door Only

Tickets are $20 for Adults and $18 for Seniors 55+, plus applicable fees. Run time is approximately two hours and fifteen minutes.
