With their large company suddenly on the brink of collapse, four panicking businesspeople make a desperate overnight attempt to save it–and their futures. Emergency proposals, email hacking, an animal sacrifice, a radical theory about the Ottoman Empire–will any of it work?
See it if Verbal pyrotechnics infuse story of a corporate meltdown Parks infuses capitalistic saga with both the silly & the relevant to mixed results
Don't see it if Written (& directed) at such a fever pitch it has nowhere to go thus a tedium sets in.... could be a metaphor for current political climate?
See it if You enjoy extreme satire that really is sketch comedy. Realism dissolves into absurdity with the use of poetic vocal and visual imagery.
Don't see it if You need a coherent storyline that moves forward in a straight line. This absurdist comedy is all over the place. All dialogue is shouted.
See it if You work in an office and want to see four talented actors poke fun at the insanity of an office environment.
Don't see it if a fast paced show that still FEELS slow, doesn't appeal to you. While often funny, the lag time between punchlines was rough.
See it if you want to see a Monty-Pythonesque skewering of corporate culture (as it existed in the 90s).
Don't see it if you'd prefer a more subtle comedy. The volume is cranked up to 11 throughout.
See it if you like themes critical of the corporate work place, off-beat witty language and minimal plots.
Don't see it if you do not enjoy a lot of shouting, similarity to sketch comedy, bare bones plots and unconventional character interactions.
See it if you want to see some amazing actors perform live. The show is quirky and may not be for everyone. Worth seeing if in corporate world.
Don't see it if you are looking for a serious show or a show that flows for the full 1 hour.
See it if You appreciate quick blackout jabs and japes at the men in the executive suites.
Don't see it if You're a stuffed shirt with no sense of humor about corporate craziness.
See it if you work in the corporate world or appreciate the absurdity of certain aspects of corporate culture; I laughed out loud a few times
Don't see it if you're bothered by some low brow humor; prefer shows with longer run times; want to see something that is a completely finished work
See it if This dystopia is a surreal corporation on the verge of collapse, and four poor out-of-touch zhlubs who try to save it. Well-directed/acted.
Don't see it if You don't enjoy quick, witty blackouts, with a touch of Beckett, Kafka, Pirandello and even Monty Python.
See it if You enjoy quick, disjointed impressions on a theme, in this case "a corporation". You don't mind a topic satirized, with little exposition.
Don't see it if You're expecting an off, off, B'way type of "Enron", or like a super, off B'way play of 2016, "Men of Tortuga". Both dealt with corporations
See it if You enjoy truly accomplished staging, a fabulous production, top-flight acting.
Don't see it if You want something a little more in-depth out of the characters on stage. The writing is tight, clever, but the emotional center is missing.
See it if seeking fast-paced surreal comedy where your mind will not be able to keep up with the linguistic high jinks but you will be tickled a lot.
Don't see it if everything has to make sense to you and fringe festival offerings leave you feeling uneasy.

Don't see it if You like a traditional way to tell a story instead of multiple vignettes.
See it if you like puns and absurd theater. This fast-paced play is a ton of puns strung together, but very smartly.
Don't see it if you want in depth characterizations or intricate plotting.
