THE STATION REPERTORY PLAYERS present
'Progress and the Builder.'
By EDWIN LEWIS
Specially Written in Commemoration of Samuel Crompton —died June 26, 1827
The play deals with the coming of machinery, from a new point of view. Man is essentially a builder, and progress comes from man's restless urge to create. Creation as such is artistic, but most plays of machines have concentrated on the economic and humane factors, whereas, this deals primarily with man, as the maker of progress.
