“Monumental Dialectics: Staging the Haymarket Square Confrontation,”
in Fifth Estate 372 (Spring 2006): 9-11, 16.

In 1998, I wrote HAYMARKET, the first full-length drama about the Haymarket Square Confrontation of 1886-7.  3 1/2 years later, I worked with Tavia LaFollette to stage a street puppet show in Chicago to commemorate that tale of terror, racism, and class struggle.  This piece examines the importance of monuments in the telling and retelling of this story.
