Submitted to Prospector

The UpStart Theatre Company is a profit-sharing collective of theatre artists, formed in 2017.

"Publishers, theatrical managers, and critics ask not for the quality inherent in creative art, but will it meet with a good sale, will it suit the palate of the people." — Emma Goldman.

"EMMA" is about a woman who did not get attention through desperate need, but rather through passionate oration in support of the masses who needed a voice.

A story to inspire people of the importance and value of their own voice in a modern corporate run America. A story to remind people that comfort is the clandestine pacifier of the people whom would otherwise stoke the fires of humanities progress towards a brighter future.

"EMMA" is the story of a woman who sacrificed her life for a cause that she believed to be the only way to bring the working class out of turmoil.

Emma Goldman was a Russian anarchist feminist orator from the late 19th and early 20th centuries who gave voice to the voiceless. This story is about what a group of people with courage can accomplish as well as how they can fail.
