THE NOT-SO-ACCIDENTAL CONVICTION OF ELEVEN MILWAUKEE "ANARCHISTS"
by Martín Zimmerman
Directed by Artistic Director Brent Hazelton**
Featuring Elyse Edelman and Dimonte Henning
April 26 - May 12, 2024 | Studio Theatre
What do you get when you cross an excommunicated Roman Catholic priest turned Third Ward Methodist
missionary, Bay View’s working-class Italian “anarchist” mill workers, Winifred Zabel and one of the
kangaroo-est courts ever convened, Emma Goldman, Clarence Darrow, a debutante bomb-maker, and so
much more? A can’t miss world premiere, of course, as four actors valiantly and hilariously strive to make
sense of the you-wouldn’t-believe-it-if-it-weren’t-true events of one of the most complicated and far-reaching moments in Milwaukee history: the 1917 bomb explosion inside the Oneida Street police station.
