Play based on the book Journey for Justice: The Life of Larry Itliong, by the late historian Dr. Dawn Mabalon and Gayle Romasanta. The assistant director under Cesar Chavez when the United Farm Workers (UFW) was created, Larry organized and led protests for equal pay and dignified living conditions for farm and cannery workers throughout the West Coast and Alaska from the 1930s to when the UFW was created in 1966. As the musical unfolds, Itliong’s story as a brilliant labor organizer comes to life, shedding light on the Filipino American community who shaped Itliong’s leadership as a 15-year-old to his posthumous recognition in Labor International’s Hall of Fame, and the proclamation of “Larry Itliong Day,” by the State of California in 2015.

John and Si Kahn met on a Harlan County picket line on Thanksgiving Day 1973. Neither of them knew then the powerful and productive friendship that began that day. Over fifty years later they’re still plotting new projects and bell-weathering one another for their individual schemes. Whether co-writing five consecutive Grammy-nominated albums, working together to support emerging community leaders, touring across America, or godfathering John’s youngest son, Si has been one of the most prolific and important writers to ever come out of the American South. In his spare time. In his “retirement” he’s written plays and musicals, including Joe Hill’s Last Will, which featured John’s acting debut. Join John and…literally!...a dozen or so of Si’s admirers, coworkers, and lovers of his music to celebrate Si Kahn’s 80th Birthday. It’ll be full of memories, wild stories, laughter, and, of course, great music.

Legendary abolitionist and the first person in the nation executed for treason in 1859, John Brown climbs out of his grave in Virginia where he was hanged, only to be rearrested and threatened with another hanging.
