Dr. Amy Kritzer directs a student reading of Duluth playwright Jeannine Coulombe's play based on real-life events that took place in 1989 in International Falls, MN. Faced with the Boise Cascade paper mill's attempts to undermine the power of their local union, workers must decide between accepting the company's terms or taking action that might ultimately destroy their town. This heated conflict boils over into a violent confrontation and one local family is irrevocably drawn into the fray. The Mill is a powerful drama about work, workers, immigration, race, and resistance. Jeannine Coulombe will be on hand to speak to students following the reading.
