"Waiting for Lefty" is comprised of a series of vignettes in depression-era New York as taxi cab drivers consider a strike. A smash hit when it was originally produced in 1935, "Waiting For Lefty" is an exploration of class consciousness, ethnic prejudice, the power of workers and the corruption of big business. Produced with an arrangement from the Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
