The earliest stages of a feminist revolution in the American workforce is at the center of this powerful and inspiring true story of strength and resilience. When World War II comes to a close and the men return home, one woman leads a movement to fight for the jobs of her fellow female factory workers. But what – and who – are they willing to give up in the fight, and what happens when loved ones get caught in the crossfire? American history, rock and roll, and feminist revolution collide in this rousing new musical.

A Beta Series Advanced Staged Reading
An early draft of a new musical presented with actors holding their scripts, limited staging, and no costumes or sets, creating a flexible environment for authors to experiment and make script changes.
