The creative team that brought you Love Is A Dream House In Lorin returns with another play about our local community. Playwright Marcus Gardley and composer Molly Holm are creating a musical play that explores the lives of the women who worked in the Richmond Shipyards during World War II - who became collectively known as Rosie the Riveter.

"I hope to give voice to the untold stories of my grandparents and the many people who worked in the Richmond shipyards 60 years ago. It is not only a story that is aching to be told but it is one that depicts and celebrates a vital turning point in Bay Area History."

The real women and their stories are as transcendent and powerful as the famous icon of Rosie the Riveter herself.
