‘Mother Jones’ returns to the stage

Written by 

An encore performance of “Mother Jones,” a monologue written by Gary Carden, will be staged at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Franklin.

In the late 19th Century, Mother Jones befriended mistreated workers across the nation. She encouraged employers to improve working conditions and to pay fair wages. Actress Lara Chew portrays Mother Jones in the theatrical monologue.

Carden recently received the 2012 North Carolina Award for Literature, the state’s highest literary honor.

Tickets are $15. Proceeds will benefit the UUFF Operating Fund.

828.524.3161 or 828.524.6777 or 828.369.8658.
