THE LOWELL OFFERING
BY ANDY BAYIATES AND GENEVRA GALLO-BAYIATES
DIRECTED BY JESS HUTCHINSON
WORLD PREMIERE OCTOBER 21-NOVEMBER 8, 2020
In 1840 in Lowell, MA, a group of factory workers began publishing the world’s first magazine written solely by women; it was called The Lowell Offering. This is the story of the magazine’s editor, Harriet Farley, and a labor activist, Sarah Bagley – and the rise and fall of their friendship, the magazine, and Lowell’s “Mill Girl” culture.
