Written and produced in NYC in Yiddish in the 1920’s, the play is a cautionary tale about the tensions within one immigrant family whose patriarch refuses to adapt, while his children want nothing more than to be ‘real Americans.’ Mordechai Maze was “somebody’ in the old country. Now he sorts remnants in a sweat shop in Manhattan's Garment District. With his son Harry busy playing baseball and his daughter Annie having just eloped with the boss’s son, Maze feels more and more like a remnant himself. When his co-workers try to get him to use his new ‘familial connection’ to their advantage by asking his new son-in-law for a raise, it proves more than he can handle. “Don’t you know what people do with remnants?” He asks. “Remnants have no value to them. Don’t you know that?”
