Winnipeg General Strike: The Musical

It’s always a bracing relief to see someone launch a musical with a more implausible basis than my own.
To wit: Danny Schur’s upcoming staging of Strike!, which is about the Winnipeg General Strike, in which 30,000 workers shut down the city for six weeks in 1919.
Yeah, I’d never heard of it, either.
