"Elizabeth Irwin’s involving, thoughtful 'My Mañana Comes,'…is character study with a political edge — honed nearly as sharp as the men’s paring knives." —  New York Times

"Irwin writes fast, funny, lived-in dialogue" —  Time Out NY

"By turns humorous and haunting... Director Chay Yew guides four terrific performances." New York Daily News

"Irwin takes a boning knife to the stereotyped class of Mexican busboys... a surprisingly complex taste of the American Dream" — Theatermania

Just beyond the elegant dining room of an Upper East Side restaurant, four busboys angle for shifts, pray for tips, and cling to dreams of life beyond their dingy back-of-house grind. Expertly juggling delicate entrees, fussy customers and beer-swilling line cooks, the young men face off with management and each other. As tensions reach a boiling point, how far will each of them go to see his own mañana come?
