Play about American workers in Cedar Rapids


A new play sharing the stories of American workers takes the stage in Cedar Rapids for Labor Day Weekend.

Iowa City's Working Group Theater stars in "Rust."

The play was written by two University of Iowa grads.

It takes place in Michigan after GM closed a plant, telling the story of what happens to the people who lost their jobs.

"To me, that speaks to basically everybody in their careers and the shifting lack of stability that so many people face in their careers today," said Jennifer Fawcett, Associate Artistic Director of Working Group Theater.

The shows are Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 7 p.m. in the CSPS Hall in Cedar Rapids.
