WAITING FOR LEFTY

The Department of Visual and Performing Arts presents

WAITING FOR LEFTY

November 6th & 7th, 13th & 14th @ 8pm

November 8th & 15th @ 2pm
Waiting For Lefty, by Clifford Odets, is one of the most celebrated and significant plays of the modern American theatre. Set in the Depression era and dealing with the cynical exploitation of the working classes, the play, which was first presented by the famous Group Theatre, became both a symbol of its times and a beacon for many soon-to-be-famous playwrights who came under its influence.  The opening scene is a hiring hall where a union leader (obviously in the pay of the bosses) is trying to convince a committee of workers (who are waiting for their leader, Lefty, to arrive) not to strike followed by a series of varied, imaginatively conceived episodes, which blend into a powerful and stirring mosaic concluding with tragic news that unites the workers.
