Waiting for Lefty, a Clifford Odets 1935 play, begins with several taxi drivers meeting to convince their union leader Harry Fatt to let them strike. The meeting is interrupted with vignettes showing each driver’s personal reasons for wanting to strike. Originally intended to be an agitprop play put on by the Group Theatre, Waiting for Lefty shows all the hardships and struggles of the American worker in the 1930s and points out the flaws in capitalism’s American Dream (some of which still exist today). (Further background available at Wikipedia.com.)Thirteen male roles, 20-60 yrs, three female roles, 20-30 yrs.
