Lorraine Bahr and Jim Davis co-direct Sowelu Theater’s production of Martha Boesing’s Hard Times Come Again No More. The play is based on the 1930s stories, essays, characters of Meridel LeSueur, a prominent “proletarian” writer of the 30s, who was blacklisted in McCarthy’s madness that followed WWII.
The play is a remarkably timely portrayal of poverty and joblessness building inevitably to a clash between the human need for dignified survival and corporate hunger for profit. The play ultimately celebrates the power of community, the ways in which we care for one another, and the strength of the people standing together.
