Award-wining playwright Martyna Majok’s Ironbound is a dark comic, heartbreaking portrait of a woman for whom love is a luxury—and a liability—as she fights to survive in America.

Darja, a Polish immigrant cleaning lady, is done talking about feelings; it’s time to talk money. Over the course of 20 years, and three relationships, Darja negotiates for her future with med who can offer her love or security, but never both.

Mark Stringham directs Ironbound with sene design by Lisette Torrez, costume design by Michael Ciaramitaro, lighting design by Justin Bennet and sound design by Brandon Bulls.
