VIDEO: The Holidays At Finlay's Corner
The Museum of Work and Culture presented a short play about the holidays in Woonsocket during the Great Depression at the Holiday Stroll.
At the Museum of Work and Culture, three showings of "The Holidays at Finlay's Corner" drew full house crowds of 30 people during the Holiday Stroll Dec. 6.
The play, according to playwright Ray Bacon, is about three immigrant workers during the Great Depression, a Irishman, French Canadian and Italian. "What they do is talk about the labor conditions in 1931," Bacon said, as well as their respective Christmas traditions.
