Piece Work

PAPERBACK
Category: Plays
Set in Montreal in the early 1980s, Piece Work is a full-length play about six women who work together in a clothing factory and are paid by the piece. Unable to confront the factory owner who exploits them, the women turn on each other instead, venting their frustrations and hostility, giving way to inner-directed rage. When one of the workers has an accident and is taken into hospital, the women begin to channel their energies towards positive action and to address the real source of the problem -- the employer. Then learn the power that comes out of unity. Piece Work is a play about gaining voice and visibility, and about acceptance -- of self and of others.
