Horse Trade presents a No Tea Production Work: A Play
"Poignant and hilarious...the ensemble comes together very well to create a fun show with lots of strange characters and lots of action...Work: A Play has the makings of something great...Get down there and check this one out." —Richard Hinojosa, NYTheatre.com
"A fantastically talented cast...Work: A Play is fun stuff...if you're in a job that feels "PowerPointless," escape the fluorescent lights and retreat into the comforting darkness of UNDER St. Marks." —Show Business Weekly
WORK: A Play is a multimedia comedy—incorporating live action and digital video shorts—about the PowerPointlessness of office life.
Our heroes are the drones working away in a nameless department at the sinister Ouroboros Corporation ("Riding you into the future!"). The head of the company has come to judge a presentation that the department has worked hard on (except for Mike, who hardly worked on it)… but what are his real intentions? Why do the interns have to wear masks? What's the deal with the bodies they keep finding in the company dumpster? And what does the evil cackling coming from the CEO's office mean? WORK: A Play will solve these mysteries, as well as teaching you how to behave at the company holiday party, explaining how a dead temp can go unnoticed for hours, and finally giving definitive etiquette rules for the workplace restroom.
