Composer:Janis Dunson Wilson

Synopsis
The Wedding takes place in the coal mining country of 1870’s Pennsylvania. A Catholic seminarian returns home for the wedding of his sister to an idealistic labor organizer.

Developing is a murderous clash of cultural forces of the time – the poor Irish coal miners and their families, the volatile Molly McGuire society, the Catholic Church, and the growing labor movement.
