The Dishwashers

By Morris Panych

2006-2007 Season
Independence Studio on 3 Production History

Next time you go to an up-scale restaurant, take a look at the dishes before you eat! Morris Panych's latest black comedy is a penetrating story about the people who clean up after us all. A dishwasher's work is never done! Our man Dressler is lord of the basement and his newest employee, Emmett, is there to serve. Or is he? Our just desserts become a battle of wits in this turf war where two men struggle to find their place at the table. You're our special guest for this deliciously literate, often funny and existentially cleansing tale of life as the common man. A basement with dirty dishes is a terrible place to waste.
