Appropriate deals with the hassles of inheritance as one family descends upon a crumbling Arkansan plantation to liquidate their dead patriarch's estate. The three adult children think they have problems as they argue over clutter, debt and their troubled family history. But, after a disturbing discovery among their father's possessions, a series of surprises and confrontations turns up the intensity at the already-uncomfortable reunion. Learn More

What a great start to our Labor Day weekend! This is a rousing evening that begins the moment you find your seat and are pulled into the imminent labor meeting and a group of people "waiting for lefty." We enjoyed the vignettes and ensemble pieces very much and definitely felt transported into 1935 America. America Blues has presented a play that entertains and informs. Highly recommended.
Waiting for Lefty
by Clifford Odets
Directed by Kimberly Senior
Inspired by the New York taxi strike of 1934 and first staged by the Group Theater in 1935, these powerful vignettes offer a treatise on societal inequities. “We’ve been kicked around so long we’re black and blue from head to toes.” The Los Angeles Times calls Waiting for Lefty “undeniably relevant” and the New York Times hails it as “fiercely dramatic.”
