About The Performance
Employees in a small-town coffee shop are overjoyed when they win their majority to unionize. However, their plans are thwarted as a historic wildfire sweeps up the California coast and threatens to burn down everything they care about most. Set in idyllic Santa Barbara, the play takes a tender, charismatic look at the complex stratification of service work and interrogates the myth of the service industry “family”.
