BETTER THAN THE bEST

a two act play 

BY

anthony e. Gallo






This two act play is about the rise, growth
and fall of the Industrial Age in the j
United States. The play takes place
in a small town in Western Pennsylvania
where steel executives build the world’s
largest steel plant at the end of the
nineteenth century.   They also build a
worker’s paradise to house workers, who
are essentially required to purchase lots in
the new town at inflated prices. The town grows with the growth of the steel industry, and nearly five thousand workers, mostly immigrant, are employed.  But the town must adjust to  automation and the collapse of the steel industry in the twentieth century.
