Waiting for Lefty is a 1935 play by the American playwright Clifford Odets. Waiting for Lefty is the story of a meeting of a New York cab driver’s union on the verge of a strike. A corrupt union leader arrogantly tries to discourage the members from walking out, support for a strike is high, and the workers nervously await the arrival of the leader of the strike faction, Lefty Costello. As they wait, members of the strike committee address the workers, each telling the story of how he came to be involved in the union and convinced of the necessity for a strike. Waiting for Lefty is a vigorous, confrontational work, based on a real 1934 strike of unionized New York cabdrivers.
