This is a staged free reading of the new play Appalachian Redneck by Edward Hernandez. The stakes are high as Peter and Willy, fearing another deadly coalmine disaster, fight to organize workers. Powerful forces, fueled by corporate greed and indifference, face off against two insignificant and unknown coal miners in a battle that may save the lives of hundreds of workers, and protect what little they have left in their lives. This play takes place in the Appalachian coalmine region in the 1930’s, a time labor woke up, and the final lines were drawn, in a battle to change the face of organized labor forever. The first ‘rednecks’ were the coalmine organizers wearing red scarves around their neck during this period of time. For info: profess2000 [at] yahoo.com
