Happy opening of Still Waiting to our own Melinda Lopez and Kate Snodgrass, frequent BTM playwright Sheri Wilner, and everyone at Boston College! This collection of three new short plays—which runs along with the classic Waiting for Lefty by Clifford Odets—puts the still-relevant concerns of workers into the modern day, including stories that focus on income and labor inequality in fields such as laboratory science, nursing, and plumbing.
