“A Must See! Joelle’s finely crafted play is laced with wit and wisdom.” 


This unconventional buddy comedy follows first-time sanitation worker Marlowe and lifer Danny in the cab of a nineteen-ton garbage truck in New York City. Marlowe is a black, Ivy League-educated newbie learning the ropes from Danny, a white blue-collar mansplainer. Tasked with picking up what the world has discarded, they learn there’s more that binds them than just picking up the trash.


Starring Michael Basile and Serena Ebony Miller. See “Cast Bios” below for more info.

“Lindsay Joelle’s script is delightfully intimate, surprising, and profound, filled with sometimes unexpected laughter and even tears. Titled for the archeological study of trash, the play mines the territories of external perception and the human heart.” – onStage Pittsburgh (2022)
