For twenty-two years Darja sits at derelict bus stop littered with cigarette butts and broken beer bottles. An immigrant from Poland, she negotiates for her future with men who can offer her love or security, but never both. The hope of a better life in America is turning out to be impossible.
Martyna Majok, recipient of this year’s Pulitzer Prize, has crafted a play about the constant battle to eke out a modest existence as a woman at the bottom of the heap. It’s a story of the highs and lows of life, rich with dark humour, fiful joy and constant struggle underneath the crumbling highway overpasses of New Jersey.
An enthralling drama about the women we overlook.
