Women of Roswell

Synopsis:
WOMEN OF ROSWELL is a forty-five minute fictional Drama about three of the female Roswell Cotton Mills workers who were accused of treason and forced to rail north during the Civil War. The play opens in July, 1864 outside the steps of the still-standing Bricks apartments that housed the cotton mill workers. Three strong women redefine home by confronting the limits of their freedom, and rediscovering their respective roles. In order to save her daughter, African American Emma disguises herself as a soldier, forcing Lia to find her own way as an Ivy Woolen Mill factory worker. A bond forges between Lia and Claire, an Irish worker, as the unlikely friends are banished from their homes and former ways of life when their factory is burned to the ground.
