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 cast includes Jason Bowen (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Huntington Theatre) as Peter, Jose Joaquin Perez (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.
