About the show

A racist comment between co-workers sparks turmoil in the ad sales department of a women’s magazine in this Off-Broadway offering presented by Long View Theater Company. More…

When a white male co-worker makes an off-the-cuff racially insensitive remark to his boss’s black female assistant, what he thought was a harmless joke snowballs, catapulting the ad sales office of a women's magazine into turmoil. Differing beliefs about power, race and class collide, resulting in an explosion of shocking revelations, lies and accusations that have the power to leave their department in utter shreds.
