The Cradle Will Rock archive'Why don't you write a piece about all kinds of prostitution - the press, the church, the courts, the arts, the whole system?' - Bertolt Brecht to Marc Blitzstein This play with music, set in 'Steeltown, USA', The Cradle Will Rock tells the story of Larry Foreman and his attempts to unionise and battle the villainous businessman Mr. Mister. Originally directed and conceived by the legendary Orson Welles and produced by John Houseman, The Cradle Will Rock has gone down in theatrical history as the musical that defied an attempted ban by USA Federal Authorities with what may have been the most rousing and poignant opening night ever.
