A black comedy about a terrible office job, an evil manager and the absurdity of the modern workplace.

Emma attends a job interview for a low-level office management position. The meeting slowly spirals out of control and into a surreal battle for sanity and survival.

A black comedy about trying to get a job you don’t really want, with a manager that will gaslight you, in a workplace that will make you crazy. A funny, tense, Pinteresque play about corporations and their needless, choking bureaucracy.
