My Mañana Comes

Oct 29 – Nov 22 2015

My Mañana Comes
by Elizabeth Irwin
October 29 – November 22, 2015

Just beyond the elegant dining room of an Upper East Side restaurant, four busboys angle for shifts, pray for tips, and cling to dreams of life beyond their dingy back-of-house grind. Expertly juggling delicate entrees, fussy customers, and beer-swilling line cooks, the young men face off with management and each other. As tensions reach a boiling point, how far will each of them go to see his own mañana come?
