From Wharf Rats to Lords of the Docks: The Life and Times of Harry Bridges
Note: The location of this event has changed.
Guest Artist: Ian Ruskin
From Wharf Rats to Lords of the Docks is a 65-minute multimedia one-man play that tells the story of union leader Harry Bridges and his life’s work, through his passions, struggles, and his wicked sense of humor. With many of his own words – from childhood stories of Australia to waterfront speeches during the 1934 strike to confessions of loss during his divorces and bouts of drinking – the play brings Bridges to life as a visionary but very human man. It was written under the watchful eye of leading scholars, ensuring that it is accurate as well as entertaining. The play takes you through some of America’s most turbulent and exciting times with the dynamic Bridges as your guide.
