The Great Divide running time: 
90 mins no interval

On the afternoon of Saturday, 25 March 1911, someone screamed “Fire!” on the eighth floor of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Within ten minutes, 146 workers, many of them young women – and most refugees from some of the world's most oppressed countries – lay dead, either on the floor of the sweatshop or on the street eight storeys below.
