2016 LaborFest | July 2-31

LaborFest is an annual festival celebrating the history and culture of working people through film, art, lectures, and exhibits all over the Bay Area from July 2-31, 2016.

> LaborFest 2016 Schedule

The festival commemorates the 82nd anniversary of 1934’s “Bloody Thursday” when two workers were shot and killed in San Francisco for supporting the longshoremen and maritime workers strike. The incident brought about the San Francisco General Strike.

In 2016 the festival also marks the 100th Year of Easter Uprising and the 100th anniversary of the Preparedness Day bombing on Market St..

The Exception and the Rule | 2016 LaborFest | July 2-31
Exception-play

Unfortunately, the following event has been canceled due to a problem at the location.

Stanford Summer Theatre (SST) presents Bertolt Brecht’s Exception and the Rule, directed by Rush Rehm.

The great German playwright Bertolt Brecht wrote The Exception and the Rule (1931-2) which questions what kind of ethics will a capitalist system produce?

Brecht wrote the play as a way of encouraging workers to unionize and recognize the forces they were up against. A funny, highly physical, and thought-provoking parable about wealth and exploitation, The Exception and the Rule packs a wallop, and all in 60 minutes.
