ABOUT THE PLAY: Danny’s a white, blue-collar, New York City sanitation worker. Marlowe’s the Black, ivy-educated newbie who just joined his route. Thrown together in the cab of a nineteen-ton garbage truck, they spend their first shifts sparring, one-upping each other, and practicing the secret art of mongo: hunting for discarded treasure. But as their lives become increasingly intertwined, these two essential workers from different worlds discover there’s more that binds them than picking up the trash.

We hope to see you at the show!
