Synopsis

"Anthracite!" brings together six unjustly neglected plays that grippingly portray the world of Appalachian coal mining. Deftly revealing the injustice and suffering of mining life early in the twentieth century, the plays in this collection are an important addition to the history of American theatre, giving voice to the mostly immigrant miners who fashioned lives and families amidst the suffering, poverty, and injustice that surrounded them. The anthology includes Jason Miller's "Nobody Hears a Broken Drum", a hard-eyed, but loving tribute to Pennsylvania's miners that is considered by many Miller fans to be a stronger work than his Pulitzer Prize - winning "That Championship Season". Also featured is Jack McDonough and Robert Schlesinger's "The Fire Down Below", which centers on the contentious 1902 Anthracite Strike and the ensuing federal trial in which Clarence Darrow presented closing arguments on the side of the miners. "Anthracite!" makes these six compelling plays available once again for those interested in American drama, the immigrant experience, and the history of labor.
