Angels in the Dark
Performed by Erin Keeney and Lockton Riley
In 1920, the Eighteenth Amendment took effect, pronouncing all of America “dry.” Introduced by the Anti-Saloon League and the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, ignorance, belief, and good intentions, all combined to make illegal the purchase, sale, transport, and consumption of any form of Alcoholic beverages. As years pass, crime, alcohol consumption, death, and hypocrisy have risen, and the consequences of such a prohibition reveal themselves. The modern gangsters and racketeers have taken shape in the larger cities. Americans are waking to a new reality, the reality of Prohibition.
