your server hates you
Ever catch the defeated little sighs accidentally escaping your server’s lips? Ever wonder if you may be the cause? Well wonder no more. Wait Crimes presents a cast of underdog food-service industry staff that indulge us in their everyday rage-fantasies provoked by colorful patrons who constantly test the limits of their patience, sanity, and restraint from homicide.
Justice is Served.

CREATOR, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, WRITER, ACTRESS
Virginia Tran grew up in a Buddhist monastery with a genuine affinity toward creativity; a drive that launched her journey into the arts. Diving head first to diversify her talents, she dabbled in dance at multiple lauded dance studios and grew her actor's practice with Meisner training. Working behind the camera on projects like Prized, Katie, and Rock the House, Virginia took the knowledge gained from those experiences to produce a commercial in a MoFilms competition, placing top 5. Being the Creator and Executive Producer of Wait Crimes has been the sum of all her endeavors, kerneling from the desire to create something meaningful for and with her friends. Rebellious server and advocate for serving up justice promptly and piping hot.
