Waiting for Lefty by Clifford Odets
& Still Waiting: New Plays by Melinda Lopez,
Kate Snodgrass, and Sheri Wilner
Directed by Patricia Riggin

Robsham Mainstage Theater
Waiting for Lefty is comprised of a series of varied, imaginatively conceived episodes, which blend into a powerful and stirring mosaic. The opening scene is a hiring hall where a union leader is trying to convince a committee of workers (who are waiting for their leader, Lefty, to arrive) not to strike. The following scenes feature different stories, including a moving confrontation between a discouraged taxi driver, who cannot earn enough to live on, and his angry wife, who wants him to show some backbone and stand up to his employer; a scene between a scheming boss and the young worker who refuses to spy on his fellow employees; an episode centering on a young cabbie and his would-be bride, who lack the wherewithal to get married; a senior doctor and the underpaid young intern (a labor activist) whom the doctor has been ordered to discharge; and, finally, a return to the union hall where the workers wait.
Still Waiting is a collection of new vignettes, all written by contemporary female playwrights, but bring the struggles of the union workers and their lives into the 21st Century.
