EstroGenius Festival: Mill Fire
The story of a heroine's struggle
Corporate settlements make for some good plot lines (looking at you, Erin Brockovich) and the Ivy Theatre Company is making the most of it with their touching tale about a catastrophic mill explosion that disturbs a tight-knit community in Alabama. Protagonist Marlene loses her husband in the mill fire but rather than keep mum and accept the mill’s settlement, she has some other ideas up her sleeve. Talk about a kickass maverick. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival.
"Lives up to its billing as a celebration of women’s work."
