"Marin Ireland creates a scrupulously honest portrait in a palette of grays... Darja will not soon be forgotten." – Los Angeles Times "Under Tyne Rafaeli's rich, incisive direction, Martyna Majok's astringently funny, surprisingly affecting Ironbound is superb!" – StageSceneLA ★★★★ "Brilliantly written, acted and directed, Ironbound is the best play presently running in L.A.!" – TotalTheater.com "Marin Ireland's absolutely captivating performance alone is worth a trip to the Geffen!" – StageSceneLA "As for the men in Darja's life, Ireland could not be blessed with a finer trio of talents... from Josiah Bania's sweetly endearing Maks to Christian Camargo's electrifying, unexpectedly winning Tommy to Spears's plucky, generous, expectations-defying Vic." – StageSceneLA CRITIC'S PICK! "Quietly gripping... with its bone-dry humor and vivid characters." – The New York Times "Gritty... genuinely moving." – The Hollywood Reporter "Majok writes with such energy and charisma... characters feel vivid and real." – The Washington Post
At once humorous and heartrending, Ironbound spans 22 years to tell the story of Darja, a Polish immigrant getting by on a cleaning job, aggressive pragmatism and sheer will. In this wry drama, award-winning playwright Martyna Majok points out that sometimes survival is the only measure of success.
