With mechanical looms and cheap imported cotton, wages have fallen, poverty and unemployment among weavers has risen. The manufacturer Thirty wants to push the wages even further and has no sympathy for the complaints of his workers. Hunger drives the weavers to fight, despair to violence. Hauptmann’s drama written in the Silesian dialect deals with the Weber uprising of 1844. The author has studied the historical sources for his social drama, quotes verbatim and takes over the course of the insurrection down to the last detail.
