Why See The Dishwashers?

This is the NYC premiere of a play by Canadian author Morris Panych. It is part of the Americas Off Broadway festival; this production is from Chester Theatre Company, Chester, Massachusetts.

Dressler scrambles to keep the basement scullery of an upscale eatery functioning, marshaling his rag-tag team with a stream of hilarious rhetoric and old-fashioned working class pride. His fellow wage slaves, the ancient Moss and the downwardly mobile Emmett, just can't seem to grasp his inspirational style. Playwright Morris Panych walks a razor's edge between comedy and tragedy chronicling the plight of men working in the lower depths of a high end restaurant.
