- The Dishwashers
"When young Emmett was a high flyer in the City he was a regular customer in an upmarket restaurant but now, thanks to a recent reversal in his fortunes, he's starting a new career there - as a dishwasher! His new colleagues are Dressler who's happily been scraping and scrubbing for over 30 years and is a bit of a philosopher, and Moss who's sadly well past his sell by date and heading for the dustbin. Together they attack the endless supply of crockery that descends from above. In this world of dirty dishes, soapsuds and despair, playwright Morris Panych brings wit and humour to their quest for existential meaning.
