Synopsis:

“Waiting for Lefty” by Clifford Odets was produced in 1935 by The Group Theater and was heavily influenced by the 40-day cab drivers’ strike which occurred the previous year.

This is not that play.

Set in the uncomfortably recent past and the even more uncomfortably near future,
“Still Waiting for Lefty” follows the lives of various warehouse workers for “New World Tech”, a predominant and monstrous Tech company with international influence, which grows and profits on the back of the working class.  As workers of the world unite to battle for equitable wages and working conditions, they must overcome New World Tech’s sinister and underhanded tactics for resolving labor disputes, wherein workers’ integrity and solidarity will be tested.
