About this event:
Armstrong AMT presents a theatre faculty showcase: the strikingly beautiful drama Ironmistress, a one-act stage play by April De Angelis. Written in the 1980s but set during the Industrial Revolution, the play examines a complicated relationship between a widow determined to run her late husband's iron mill and her childlike daughter on the eve of the daughter's wedding.

The methodical, almost mechanical plot explores the economies of power during the rise of a consumer culture while unpacking the roles women play in their relationship to one another, and to the societal dictates threatening them. Ironmistress is chillingly relevant today, twenty years since the time it was written, and over 150 years since the time it was set.

Audience discretion is advised: language and content.

Performances are at Armstrong's Jenkins Hall Black Box Theater.

General admission: Only $10.
Discounts available to military, seniors, alumni association members, and students/children.
Armstrong students, faculty and staff admitted free of charge with valid PirateCard.
