Reduction in Force, a new corporate comedy by San Francisco-area playwright Patricia Milton, is a hilarious economic comedy about butt-kissing, back-stabbing, and the survival of the sneakiest.
Voted "Best Local Play" in the 2011 Broadway World San Francisco Theater Awards, Reduction in Force examines minute-by-minute ethical decisions made by employees of Icarus Financial Services during a massive layoff.
What happens when people are reduced to commodities, and fraud is the preferred way of doing business? A reduction in force puts career secretary Anita Green on the chopping block. Will she keep her job or her self-respect?
"This is our first full-length play to be produced from our open submission program, and we really got lucky to be connected with such a wonderful playwright in Patricia Milton," says Executive Artistic Director Doug Schutte. "With over 300 full-length submissions from dozens of states (and countries), the fact that Patricia's work stood out from the crowd speaks volumes about her acumen as a playwright."
Tickets $15, $12 for students and seniors.
