Ironbound by Martyna Majok
In the industrial wastelands of New Jersey, an immigrant Polish woman waits for the bus after a long day. Sometimes, when she misses the bus, she sleeps on a bench or in an abandoned factory. A man always appears, and he has something to offer. This play examines the lives and personal choices immigrants make to participate in the American Dream. Ironbound was commissioned for the Smith Prize, which honors a play that deals with relevant political issues. Ironbound is presented at the Academy of Elizabethtown, 66 Caldwell Place, Elizabeth, NJ. NJPAC
