    Grab your picket sign and get ready to march! Later banned in Boston and New Haven, the first performance of Waiting for Lefty by the Group Theatre started a riot.


    The mysterious disappearance of Lefty, the head of the strike committee, during a union meeting prompts a series of flashbacks that reveal the intensely personal reasons behind a group of taxi workers’ rallying call to action.


    With the fight for living wages and safe, equitable workplaces continuing to cause political debates, Clifford Odets’ iconic collage of the American working class illustrates the power of individual protest and the right to reform.
