Late at night, in the shadows of a shuttered Newark factory, Darja’s decided she’s done waiting – for the bus, for a break, for luck, for love. Her hopes for a brighter future, which propelled her from her native Poland two decades ago, continue to escape her. Assembly-line worker, housecleaner, mother, wife – Darja’s done dealing with feelings and the men in her life. It’s time to talk money. Award-winning playwright Martyna Majok takes us on a darkly funny 20-year journey through the tangled hopes and heartbreak of the "American Dream."
