Regional Premiere of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize-Winner "Three generations of loyalty to the same company. This is America, right? You'd think that would mean something." In a local bar in Rust Belt, USA, steel workers share a lifetime of drinks, secrets, laughter and friendship. The guarantee of working together on the factory floor erodes as an American way of life disappears. When one of their own is promoted into management, trust and friendship erode. Strikes, layoffs, lockouts and picket lines lead to an us vs. them battle over NAFTA, income inequality, unions, race and loyalty.
