A biting high-octane satire about our attraction to power and what we're willing to sacrifice to stay in its orbit. For these young assistants, life is an endless series of humiliations at the hands of their hellacious boss, a powerful uber-magnate. In rare moments of calm when the phone calls stop rollin’, Nick and Nora and their traumatized co-workers question whether all their work will lead to success — or just more work. A welcome follow-up by Leslye Headland to her brilliant play Bachelorette.

Major Barbara by George Bernard Shaw; directed by Stephen Fried.

In this modern masterwork, described by The Guardian’s Michael Billington as a unique mix of Oscar Wilde and Bertolt Brecht, the great G.B. Shaw pits a military industrialist against his crusading daughter, putting an eternally new twist on the questions of salvation and social engineering. The play’s dialectical dynamics are tossed about in a maelstrom of romantic and familial emotion.
