In an empty lot on a New York street corner, six men wait: For coffee. For work. For news. For their luck to change. This vital new play places a literal fence line through the center of contemporary dialogue on labor and immigration—and asks whether it’s a divide that can ever be scaled.

American Jornalero focuses on the plight of a group of day laborers/jornaleros in Queens. It is a portrait of the intersecting transient lives in the search for a daily wage in a land of many compromised American dreams. American Jornalero is a compassionate, clear-eyed and illuminating look at lives and people too often ignored in the U.S. landscape.

"Timely, powerful, intimate... puts us in the middle of crippling, outdated immigration policies"

"Poignancy, humor, power... a fresh take on the American Dream"
