We are surrounded by ghosts. We hear their stories through the objects, buildings, and traditions they’ve left behind. She Died for Our Convenience was a one-night-only choral haunting concerning the women who worked from 1898-1960 in the textile mill at the Earnscliffe Woolen Mill/Paragon Worsted Co. on Manton Ave in the Olneyville neighborhood in Providence, RI.
