Set in the Midlands, Lawrence's Touch and Go is a three-act play dealing with clash between capitalism and labor. In his attempt to organize miners Willie Houghton argues that capitalism is like a wheel-cart and labor is like the frog crushed beneath its wheels. "The essence of tragedy, which is creative crisis, is that a man should go through with his fate, and not dodge it and go bumping into an accident.

For one thing we should have a People's Theatre. Perhaps it would help us in this hour of confusion better than anything.
