Join four busboys at an uptown NYC restaurant as they learn the hard way how to deal with extreme pay cuts that jeopardize their plans, their dignity and their camaraderie.
The severity of the minimum wage crisis and rights for undocumented restaurant workers lie at the forefront of the Bay Area Premiere of Elizabeth Irwin's My Mañana Comes at Marin Theatre Company. As a 2013-14 Playwrights Realm Writing Fellow, Ms. Irwin debuted Mañana Off-Broadway last September at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. Though Mañana is no fairy tale, it offers a fresh take on a story about four busboys' pursuit of the “American Dream” and a sociopolitical commentary on the solidarity of the working class.
Directed by Kirsten Brandt | Featuring Eric Avilés, Caleb Cabrera, Carlos Jose Gonzalez Morales and Shaun Patrick Tubbs
