About the Play
Join four busboys at an uptown NYC restaurant as they learn the hard way how to deal with circumstances that jeopardize their plans, their dignity and their camaraderie.

The severity of the minimum wage crisis and rights for undocumented restaurant workers are at the forefront of the Bay Area Premiere of Elizabeth Irwin's My Mañana Comes at Marin Theatre Company. "Honed nearly as sharp as the men’s paring knives" (New York Times) in its off-Broadway run last year, My Mañana Comes offers a fresh take on a story about four busboys' pursuits of the American Dream and a sociopolitical commentary on the solidarity of the working class.
