My Mañana Comes

Called, “fast, funny, lived-in … a wistful (but not sugarcoated) portrait of four rich, layered characters," by Timeout New York, My Mañana Comes gives the audience an insight into the lives of 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 play, directed at the Marin Theatre Company by Kirsten Brandt. As a 2013-14 Playwrights Realm Writing Fellow, Ms. Irwin debuted Mañana Off-Broadway last September at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. Though it is no fairy tale, the play offers a fresh take on a story about the pursuit of the “American Dream” and a sociopolitical commentary on the solidarity of the working class.
