Set in a slaughter house, Slaughter City looks at the pressure and horrific working conditions of factory floor workers. Almost dream-like, the play focuses on labor- on those who labor, bodies in labor, the gritty realities of labor, and sparks that ignite change. Kentucky playwright Naomi Wallace brings sharp insight, political anger, and cool, graceful and poetic language to bloody and tension-filled circumstances.
