Though of course many social ills still exist in today's society, the script is rather dated in its agit-prop 1930s aesthetic. It's interesting to see, however, and the production is solid and the performances remarkably stirring. Chicago's deep talent pool is well represented.
Waiting for Lefty is one of the most celebrated and significant plays of the modern American theatre. Set in the Depression era, and dealing with the cynical exploitation of the working class, this powerful exploration of the human spirit and the resilience of the American family still holds significance with audiences today.
