A group of friends have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when picket lines chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a gut-wrenching fight to stay afloat. Heartbreaking and surprisingly funny, this remarkable play explores the profound forces that seek to divide us.
