ONE ACT - Bonnie has been working the late shift at Don's Diner for the past twenty years. It has been her second home and a source of pride. Tonight is Joe's first day as a cook at Don's Diner and he's late. As these two clash waiting for a 2:00 a.m. rush that may not ever happen, they discover that hopes and dreams come too late for some, and sometimes people are too late in their lives to make a shift.

Late Shift is an exploration of the ruts that people get into, the petty day-to-day minutia that becomes exponentially important, and the tragedy of unrealized dreams as people wait for The Moment.
