Well we closed Overtime: Men at Work to amazing response and multiple full houses. The cast and crew were phenomenal and I couldn’t be prouder. Here are some images from the piece:
Overtime: Men At Work opens April 27th and runs through the 29th and May 4th & 5th at Proctor’s Theatre (In the “Underground”). Conceived and Directed by Jonathan Beller and Jarod Hanson and created through a collaborative workshopped process, Overtime: Men At Work is a corporate rollercoaster ride through the typical office cubicle, where every looming deadline seems to come quicker than the one before.
Three desperate desk workers struggle to meet the demands of the office space rat race. Can they climb the corporate ladder, or will they lose their footing and slip, rung by rung, to the depths of depravity? Navigating their way through the monotony of the workday, these everymen face stark questions about their goals, motivations, scruples, and camaraderie.
Overtime: Men At Work explores issues relating to workplace gender roles and capitalist exploitation, and themes of thwarted ambition, individuality, disillusionment, and the American Dream-Turned-Nightmare. It’s a surreal romp with familiar iconography, quirky comedy, and the troubling undercurrent of the struggles of the working everyman.
Dates: April 27-29; May 4 & 5
Times: All shows 8pm (1 hr running time)
Location: Proctor’s Theatre in the “Underground”
