Play Description:
In 1917 a bomb went off at the Milwaukee police station and eleven Italian “anarchists” were charged. But what really happened that day? Four actors gather to devise a play about the incident, and in the process, unveil larger questions about ethnic politics, the justice system, and our own city.

Parking and Accessibility:
There is ample free street parking around the venue.

Please note that there are a few steps leading into this historic building. Staff will be on-site to assist if you need help accessing Puddler’s Hall.

About Puddler’s Hall:
Puddler’s Hall stands proudly as Milwaukee’s second oldest tavern. The building was built in 1872, and by 1873 it was established as a union hall for the puddlers and boilers of the nearby Milwaukee Iron Company. Since then, it has served as Bay View’s major meeting place for decades, being used for concerts, lectures, meetings, and celebrations.
