The world premiere of My Mañana Comes, a new play by Elizabeth Irwin, officially opens Sept. 4 at Playwrights Realm following previews that began Aug. 26.

Directed by Chay Yew, the play continues through Sept. 20 at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater.

The cast includes Jason Bowen (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) as Peter, Jose Joaquin Perez (Adoration of the Old Woman) as Jorge, Brian Quijada (Where Did We Sit on the Bus) as Whalid and Reza Salazar (Por Gusto) as Pepe.

"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," press notes state. "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 their own mañana come?"

The creative team includes Wilson Chin (scenic design), Moria Sine Clinton (costume design), Nicole Pearce (lighting design) and Mikhail Fiksel (sound design). Production Core is the production supervisor. Winnie Y. Lok is the production stage manager, and Catherine Lynch is the assistant stage manager.

The Peter Jay Sharp Theater is located at 416 W. 42nd Street. Visit PlaywrightsRealm.org for more information.
