About the Play
In a world where even the ugly jobs are gone, hard-working Polish immigrant Darja is done dating cheaters and dreamers. It’s time to look out for herself and the only thing that matters more – her son. Over the course of three relationships spanning 22 years, Darja must decide how hard she’s willing to fight for what she loves most. From rising star Martyna Majok comes a new play brimming with humor, wit, and a lot of heart.
