MY MANANA COMES Begins Previews at Playwrights Realm
The Playwrights Realm presents the World Premiere of MY MAÑANA COMES by Elizabeth Irwin. MY MAÑANA COMES is directed by Chay Yew (Artistic Director for Victory Gardens Theater, Chicago). The production runs tonight, August 26, through September 20, 2014 with a September 4 opening at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater (416 W. 42nd Street, NYC).
The cast includes Jason Bowen (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Huntington Theatre) as Peter, José Joaquín Peréz (Intar's Adoration of the Old Woman by José Rivera) as Jorge, Brian Quijada (Where Did We Sit on the Bus?, Terra Nova Collective) as Whalid and Reza Salazar (Por Gusto, Repertorio Español) as Pepe.
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 their own mañana come?
The design team includes Wilson Chin (Scenic Design), Moria Sine Clinton (Costume Design), Nicole Pearce (Lighting Design) and Mikhail Fiksel (Sound Design). Production Core is the Production Supervisor. Winnie Y. Lok is the Production Stage Manager and Catherine Lynch is the Assistant Stage Manager.
