About the show

A new drama at Theater for the New City examining the limits of professional relationships and the danger of rumors. More…

Grace is a new hire at an aviation publication and all her co-workers are trying to keep an eye out for her, so she doesn’t make any rookie mistakes. Warren, the paper’s managing editor, decides to take the new reporter under his wing, but as their friendship grows so does the suspicion of her co-workers. The office grows tense as accusations fly and the situation spirals out of control.
