In this abridged audio-collage of the play "The Worker Must Have Bread, but She Must Have Roses Too", a cast of female immigrants illustrates the stories of the factory workers who were victims of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911 through manipulation of song, court documents, poetry, and short excerpts from Leon Stein's book "The Triangle Fire".
