‘Mother Jones’ returns to the stage

In the late 19th Century, Mother Jones befriended mistreated workers across the nation. She encouraged employers to improve working conditions and to pay fair wages. Actress Lara Chew portrays Mother Jones in the theatrical monologue.

Carden recently received the 2012 North Carolina Award for Literature, the state’s highest literary honor.

Tickets are $15. Proceeds will benefit the UUFF Operating Fund.
