Slaughter City

Lankershim Arts Center
5108 Lankershim Blvd. North Hollywood

Slaughter City follows the lives of a group of workers laboring at a slaughterhouse. Tensions rise as the work gets tougher and more dangerous, their wages are cut, and their benefits reduced. The play was inspired by a number of labor-related incidents including the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911 and the 1993 strike at Fischer's meat packing plant in Louisville, Kentucky. Said the New York Times, “Wallace serves a language, rich and poetic, associate and dreamlike, often surreal, and in every case haunted by history.”

Stage Raw - Not Recommended

"...Director Jer Adrianne Lelliott’s static pacing turns this two-and-a-half-hour show into an endurance trial, and Donna Eshelman’s affected choreography (did this piece really need dance interludes?) is the unnecessary icing on an unappealing cake. Playwright Wallace, writer of the excellent One Flea Spare, is heavy-handed here — and just bad."
