Joe Hill: The Man Who Never Died


The Joe Hill Project with Joey Shaw (New York, USA)

‘American labour icon!? Ridiculous. I’m a wharf-rat Swede and a songster. Well, Utah heard enough of my ranting, framed me for murder, had me executed. But I made up my mind not to die, as the song goes…’ This new solo show from writer, composer, actor and musician Joseph Shaw inhabits the ghost of early 20th-century union activist and songwriter Joe Hill, immortalised in the protest song of the same name. Songs and readings from Hill’s letters offer glimpses of his fascinating life.

Created and performed by | Joey Shaw
Directed by | Bobbin Ramsey
