City of Unrest is a Diva Theater Production that is a part of a triology, which spans the history of the labor movement during the late 19th century based on historical events in NEPA. City of Unrest, written by Margo and Marnie Azzarelli and directed by Paige Balitski, is a sequel to the first play of the series, The Bristol. City of Unrest takes place in Scranton during the labor riot on August 1, 1877, which characters from The Bristol, such as Michael Logan, coal miner and activist, and new characters, such as New York based journalist, Phoebe Gibbons, become embroiled in the riot caused by W.W. Scranton’s letter to decrease coal miner’s wages yet again.

As for the playwrights, Margo and Marnie’s mission is to convey the stories that were passed down from generations, not of the rich, but of the every day person. They hope to continue their story of sharing local history in their next play, which will take place in the 1880’s. For this project, Margo and Marnie stated that City of Unrest is unique, because it is a part of a triology  that is “lead by bad ass women!”

This is a play you won’t want to miss!
