“Waiting for Lefty” Looks at Working Class

Isadoora Theatre Company’s production of Waiting for Lefty by Clifford Odetts will open on Friday, May 13 at the Ephraim Village Hall. Directed by Ross Dippel, the show will play May 13 – 15 and 19 – 22. Thursday through Saturday performances will begin at 7:30 pm; Sunday matinees will begin at 2 pm.

Set in the Depression era, the Waiting for Lefty is loosely based on the New York City taxi cab drivers’ strike of 1934. A series of vignettes dealing with the cynical exploitation of the working classes is framed by the meeting of the cab drivers’ union, which is debating whether or not to stay off their jobs until their grievances are finally heard.

Isadoora is excited to spark thoughtful conversation about current events with this potent theatrical production, as post-show talkbacks will be held following every performance. Isadoora Theatre aims to provide theatrical experiences of intellectual integrity fulfilled by open self-examination and artistic risk for the educational and cultural enrichment of the Door County community.

Tickets for Waiting for Lefty are $14 for adults and $10 for students. For more information or to reserve tickets call 920.493.3667. Any tickets remaining will be available for purchase at the door beginning 45 minutes prior to each performance.
