    Episode 1 - Triangle Factory Fire Project - The Strike (1909). The Fire (1911)

    HEAR PLAY Audio Theatre's premiere offering: THE TRIANGLE FACTORY FIRE PROJECT by Christopher Piehler & Scott Alan Evans

    EPISODE 1 The Strike (1909).  The Fire (1911)
    The Triangle Waist Company was one of New York City’s largest garment factories of its day.  Located in the ten story Ashe Building just off Washington Square in downtown Manhattan, Triangle employed over 500 workers, many of them immigrants from Eastern Europe, Russia, and Italy.  These workers, mostly young women, toiled fourteen-hour days making a popular lady’s garment: the shirtwaist.  
    On Saturday, March 25, 1911, just as the closing bell is about to ring at 4:45PM, a cigarette is tossed into a bin of fabric scraps on the eighth floor.  Despite desperate efforts, flames rapidly sweep through the eighth, ninth, and tenth floors of the loft building — the three floors the Triangle Waist Company inhabits.
    THE TRIANGLE FACTORY FIRE PROJECT uses eyewitness accounts, court transcripts and other archival material to create a dramatic moment-by-moment account of this historic fire and the social upheaval that followed.  It culminates in the manslaughter trial of the owners, Isaac Harris and Max Blanck, the repercussions of which shaped social, political, and economic policies for decades to come.
