Reduction in Force at The Bard's Town

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.

    There is a 2 for 1 deal at DealChicken.com (like GroupOn or LivingSocial) for this show. Comes with a free appetizer, too.

    I just joined - so how does this work? Do we buy tickets on our own and then meet up before, after or both - or do we go as a group?

    • Gary M.

      It's a new group so we're playing it by ear. For this event, you reserve your tickets online (no payment required - you pay when you arrive). Since it is general admission, we'll meet as a group at the theater and try to sit together. Afterwards, we can stick around and discuss it or head to another venue and discuss it.

    Are we going to reserve our tickets ourselves?

    July 17, 2013

    • Gary M.

      Yes, go to the website and reserve your individual tickets. (It is reserve only - pay at the venue that evening - they prefer cash).
