Waiting for Lefty
At the height of the Great Depression, Clifford Odets' Waiting for Lefty rocked the class consciousness of America while setting a new standard for theatrical realism. Though it debuted in 1935, the play continues to resonate in light of increased unionization and labor activity across the country, as well as the general reevaluation of the culture of work brought on by COVID-19. In our 2022 production, a meeting of union truck drivers frames a series of vignettes that offer a glimpse into the lives and loves of labor agitators. Why are they agitating? What do they deserve? What will they have to do to get it?

Ticket sales will benefit the Pioneer Valley Workers Center, a Northampton nonprofit that champions labor and immigrant rights. Additionally, the first three performances will be followed by panel discussions with local labor organizers.

Performances will occur in the barn at the Institute for the Musical Arts, 165 Cape Street, Goshen, Massachusetts. We will ask that audience members wear masks for the duration of the show.
