Audio Drama. On Saturday, March 25, 1911, just at the close of day, a fire breaks out at the Triangle Waist Company in New York City. Housed on the upper floors of the Ashe Building off Washington Square, it is one of the city's largest garment factories. In a matter of minutes the lives of 146 workers, mostly young immigrant women, are lost as the fire rips through the building. Based on the acclaimed Off-Broadway play, THE TRIANGLE FACTORY FIRE PROJECT tells the story of one of New York City's most devastating fires and one of history's most important pivotal moments. Told through first person accounts, period ephemera, and trial transcripts, this special audio version has been designed to bring the play and the event to the listener in vivid and dramatic life. Produced for Hear Play Audio Theatre by Daryl Bornstein and Scott Alan Evans. If you enjoy this, please consider supporting our work. Go to: Thank you!
