The artists of New World Performance Lab have created a rich multimedia production that brings audiences into the heart and soul of Akron’s labor movement from 1932-1936. The original work, "Industrial Valley," devised by NWPL’s company of seven with director James Slowiak, is based on the 1939 book of the same name by Ruth McKenney, who was a Beacon Journal reporter in 1933-34. The vibrant, one-of-a-kind play continues its world premiere this weekend at Balch Street Theatre in Akron.
