Set in the 1930s, Forgotten tells the story of Lewis Bradford, a minister and radio host with a vision of "labor peace" who goes to work at the yet-to-be organized Ford Motor Company. Author/composer Steve Jones uncovers the mystery surrounding Bradford's death through a sequence of jazz-based songs and the narrative of Bradford's widow, Ella. Dedicated to the thousands of workers who overcame racial divisions, red-baiting, and company thugs to build a union, Forgotten bursts onto the stage in a passionate display of musical virtuosity and good old-fashioned storytelling.
