Mother Jones In Heaven. A musical by Si Kahn

A true revolutionary then and now, Mary Harris “Mother” Jones championed the rights of workers to fair wages and safe working conditions. Mine workers, mill workers, child laborers, and the disenfranchised were her children. She fought with the most powerful tool she had: her words.

Si Kahns powerful musical Mother Jones in Heaven brings her to life with story and song in a compelling theatrical event.

“Go Vivian Nesbitt perform in Mother Jones in Heaven by Si Kahn. I promise you will not be the same after you lift a glass or two in that Irish pub on the good side of the Pearly Gate” – James Nave

“One of the best theatrical productions I have ever seen. A musical with drama, humor and pathos. The play is a brilliant, compelling, entertaining example of how art/creativity can open our eyes and hearts and minds to get involved – and know that that one person, one action can change our politics, our world.” Connie Regan-Blake

“MOTHER JONES IN HEAVEN is the kind of work that brought me into theater in the first place. I’ve never merely been interested in entertaining audiences with jazz hands and showmanship. I went into this business to move people and change minds, and have folk leave the theater looking a world a little differently than they walked in. Mother Jones in Heaven is that kind of project. Thank you for the opportunity to shift the zeitgeist that much more.” – Alice Jankell, Director
