In inner city Philadelphia, an abnormally huge dandelion has grown through the sidewalk in front of the house of Jalil and Kwamaine, two brothers who are waiting for the arrival of their nonexistent father. Leftovers tell the story of the brothers as they figure out their journey to manhood without their father and discover the reality of their dreams. A poignant, poetic, gritty play full of family and magic, penned by Josh Wilder and featured as a GPTC MainStage reading in 2014.
