The Workers’ Theater group gives voice to the rich history and contemporary struggle for living wages and fair working conditions (bread) along with dignity and artistic expression (roses).
The performers are workers turned actors, members of the movement itself, who have successfully entertained, educated and activated audiences on key issues such as raising the minimum wage and cleaning up government. Their performances commemorate the rich history of the labor movement, while celebrating social justice and solidarity with the arts.
They have wowed thousands across Missouri, at venues large and small, from our House Party series, to Union Halls, the Missouri History Museum and the Grand Center’s Theatre Crawl. Thanks to MOVE, the Missouri Organizing and Voter Engagement Collaborative, we have taken the show on the road to Columbia and Kansas City, Missouri
Each season brings an inspired rendition of the Workers’ Opera, revamped and remixed, including some of the original cast as well as new additions, new poems, new music, dance and movement, historical reenactments and many new stories.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 9 am until 3 pm. The Missouri Historical Society’s Discovery Bus Tour featuring St. Louis’ Labor History will be led by Joan Suarez, Executive Director of Bread and Roses Missouri.
Don’t miss the debut of Jailbird written by Colin McLaughlin and directed by Kathryn Bentley. The play is a dramatization of the 1920 presidential campaign of Eugene V. Debs, an outspoken labor organizer and socialist leader who won a million votes from his jail cell. Date TBA.
