Merrimack Repertory Theatre and the UMass Lowell English Department will present a dramatic reading of The Lowell Offering, a work in progress by Andy Bayiates and Genevra Gallo-Bayiates, at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15, at the Lowell National Park Visitor Center, 246 Market Street. Jess Hutchinson will direct.

Admission is free, but reservations are required. Those interested can call 978-970-5000.

In March MRT will present the fully staged world premiere of The Lowell Offering. In 1840 a group of factory workers began publishing the world’s first magazine written solely by women; it was called The Lowell Offering. The play is the story of the magazine’s editor, Harriet Farley, and a labor activist, Sarah Bagley – and the rise and fall of their friendship, the magazine, and “Mill Girl” culture.

Circle Health serves as the 2019-20 Season Sponsor. For The Lowell Offering, Enterprise Bank and UMass Lowell serve as Production Sponsors with WCAP Radio and Merrimack Valley Magazine as Media Sponsors.
