100 years ago, two-thirds of the workers of Winnipeg walked off the job in the largest labour action in Canadian history. For six weeks the workers of Winnipeg controlled the city and fought street toughs, the bosses, and the government for a shot at a better life. The play is about the capacity for everyday people to do great things together, with special attention paid to the role of women and immigrants in the greatest strike in Canadian history.
