Pray For the Dead:
A Musical Tale of Morgues, Moguls and Mutiny
Pray for the Dead - A Musical Tale of Morgues, Moguls and Mutiny, a new play for and about workers and unions, is now available as a radio show. The musical comedy, with 12 songs, was shown to enthusiastic audiences of unions and working class audiences in the Washington DC area this past summer. One audience member described it as “Sweeney Todd meets Norma Rae meets Bertolt Brecht.” The story focuses on a group of morgue workers in an unknown country facing calamity in their fight for a new contract and unexpectedly leading an uprising against government and corporate corruption. The play was written by Gene Bruskin a 40 year veteran of the U.S. labor movement.
This 30 minute radio version of the play, with the music, aired on WPFW in Washington, DC and in San Francisco on Bill Fletcher's weekly show Arise! It includes a 10 minute interview about unions and culture.
