Description

Theatre Jacksonville presents The Triangle Factory Fire Project sponsored by the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The play, written by Christopher Piehler in collaboration with Scott Alan Evans, chronicles one of the worst disasters in New York City. On March 25, 1911 a fire broke out in the Triangle Waist Factory in downtown NY. In the space of twenty-eight minutes, the fire was under control, but 146 people, mainly young immigrant girls, had died.

The Triangle Factory Fire Project uses eyewitness reports, court transcripts and other archival material to create this new dramatic account of the historic fire and the social upheaval that followed. It culminates in the manslaughter trial of the owners, Isaac Harris and Max Blanck, whose shocking acquittal inspired new outrage across New York and the entire country, the repercussions of which shaped social, political and economic policies for decades to come.
