Inspired by John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, Gabriel Rivas Gomez's new drama Cardboard Capital shows that the themes of work and class put forth by that seminal novel have never been more relevant. When two homeless people, one deaf and one a pregnant illegal immigrant, find work at an Amazon-style mega-warehouse, they soon realize that they are valued less than the cardboard boxes they are packing and shipping. As the pair struggle to find their place amidst a ragtag group of vagabond workers who don't even speak the same language, a moving examination of immigration, commercialization and the plight of the modern blue-collar American worker unfolds.

A great play! Gordon Goodman's fine performance brought John Barrymore back to life, giving me a chance to "meet" him for the very first time. A fond and humorous - and yes, melancholy - tribute to an aging Hollywood legend attempting to halt a downward spiral before the curtain falls on his life. Well written and well acted. Highly recommend.

Goodman delivers “a wonderful understanding of this larger than life actor…riveting…hopefully this show will bring a spotlight to this marvelous performer.” —Stage Happenings
“…mind-bendingly powerful production…(Goodman is) in turns, he is charming, elegant, bawdy, animated, self-deprecating, hilarious, bitter, “off color” … and captivating throughout. —__”Tolucan Times":http://tolucantimes.info/section/theatre_review/its-funny-but-now-that-the-days-are-shorter-and-darkness-comes-sooner/__
