Waiting For Lefty Study Guides

  • Waiting for Lefty


    Waiting for Lefty offers a critique of the conflict felt by the workers who struggle under the capitalist system and those who profit from their labor. A group of taxi drivers meets to discuss the possibility of going on strike. The leaders of the union are anti-strike and label anyone who is pro-strike a "red," or Communist. The play is divided into seven vignettes that take place during the meeting, providing a bit of background into each of the characters.
