One of the most celebrated and significant plays of the modern American theatre, WAITING FOR LEFTY by Clifford Odets is set in the Depression era and deals with the exploitation of the working classes. First presented by the famous Group Theatre, the play has become a symbol of its times and a beacon for many soon-to-be famous playwrights. The action of the play is comprised of a series of varied, imaginatively conceived episodes - five in all - which blend into a powerful and stirring mosaic. The cast , which can be modified, calls for thirteen men and two women. Just a flexible, unit set is required. The "Acting Edition," published in soft cover by Dramatists Play Service, has a list of characters preceding the text and a complete prop list following the play. The text includes explicit stage directions.
