Eastern Theater Presents Waiting for Lefty

St. Davids, PA, November 18, 2016 – Eastern University Theater presents Waiting For Lefty on Thursday November 17-19 at 8 p.m. and November 20 at 3 p.m.

Directed by Griffin Stanton Ameisen, Clifford Odets's Waiting for Lefty is considered the most prolific American social protest dramatist of the thirties. In 1939, Odets wrote of his plays, "let them stand, crudities and all, as a small parade of a young talent discovering and shaping itself." Set in the Great Depression Waiting for Lefty uses archetypal characters during a taxi strike to comment on the state of Capitalism in America and those it seems to leave behind. 1930's or present day? You decide.

Thursday, November 17 at 8:00 p.m.
Friday, November 18 at 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, November 19 at 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, November 20 at 3:00 p.m.
