Soups, Stews and Casseroles: 1976 - Goodman Theater

A wave of uncertainty spreads across the once peaceful hamlet of Monroe, Wisconsin, after a Chicago-based corporation acquires the town’s main employer, leaving workers and their families to fear for their livelihoods. The merger, however, presents longtime employee Kim a newfound opportunity—and a moral dilemma. Should he accept a lucrative promotion under the new management and risk alienating himself from his longtime co-workers, neighbors and family? Fresh off her Jeff Award-winning Luna Gale, Rebecca Gilman presents a humorous yet thought-provoking examination of workers’ rights and the effects of big business on small town lives.
