Playwright Kathryn McCarty on Rivets set

Playwright Kathryn McCarty on Rivets set

Powerful lines in Kathryn G. McCarty’s play RIVETS.

Relationships between female coworkers, sisters, mothers and daughters, management and union, Caucasians and Blacks, women and the men being shipped out to fight, women and the men at home front . . . wartime in U.S.A.

Tension, conflict, drama, comedy, songs, dance, poignancy, history, resilience, patriotism, love, hope.

Will Southard played multiple parts skillfully–fun to watch him. Entire cast did superb job. Behind-the-stage crew deserves applause too.

Thank you, Elisa, for orchestrating the day!
