Mother Jones In Heaven - a musical by Si Kahn

Santa Fe, NM
Share this event:



Si Kahn's powerful musical Mother Jones in Heaven brings the legendary labor organizer to life with story and song in a moving theatrical event featuring  Vivian Nesbitt in the role of Mother Jones with John Dillon on guitar and harmony.

Mary Harris Mother Jones championed the rights of workers to fair wages and safe working conditions. Mine workers, mill workers, child laborers, and the disenfranchised were her children. She fought with the most powerful tool she had: her words.

Vivian Nesbitt (Breaking Bad, The Night Shift, Longmire and more) portrays Mary Harris Mother Jones, with musical accompaniment by John Dillon, in Si Kahns one-woman musical about the infamous labor organizer famed for her tireless efforts on behalf of the rights of the working class. Leading the charge for better working conditions and fair pay for coal miners, mill workers and child laborers, Mother Jones was dubbed The Most Dangerous Woman in America by a West Virginia judge because, At the crook of her little finger, she could get 8,000 men to walk out on strike. Feared, revered and lauded in song and story, Mother Jones was the grandmother of all agitators. At a time when issues that unions stand for, like safe working conditions, fair pay and equal rights are under attack, the play stands as a reminder that the fight is far from over.

The musical opens as Mother Jones arrives in Heaven to discover that its identical to her favorite Irish Pub. In the course of the 80 minute performance, Mother Jones looks back over her life, balancing the scales as she sifts through her storied past, weaving moments of profound insight with hilarious tales of a hellion in her prime. On the one side, her methods and practices, on the other, her reputation and results. Vivian and John skillfully set the pace for the compelling book and fourteen original songs by author, activist, songwriter Si Kahn.
