"My Mañana Comes is a must see...a West Coast Premiere starring four gifted actors flawlessly directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg..." -Examiner.com
 
"A witty, meaty West Coast Premiere…a propulsive show that builds like the dinner rush on a busy weekend." -San Diego Union Tribune
 

 
 

Peter and Whalid are American born. Jorge and Pepe are undocumented immigrants from Mexico. They are an all-star quartet of busboys who work in a swanky New York restaurant.

This band of brothers on the job is an amazing team - filling bread baskets, folding napkins, slicing lemons, clearing tables and delivering food to unseen customers in a busboy ballet of crisscross, swerve, and dodge. They bond and banter, show off and hide their secrets like only a team of laborers can.

For these men what you take home each night in cash is what keeps your head above water. When a shocking event threatens to shatter their economic security and dreams of a better life, the need to take care of number one first opens a giant and dangerous chasm between the brothers.
