Black Lab Theatre presents Assistance
“This is no fluffy sitcom, no Ricky Gervais office meringue: This is the battlefield of a modern-day workplace, with underlings who are under unending siege.” This snippet from Vogue’s review of Assistance’s premiere at Playwrights Horizons may have readers convinced they’re about to see a dramatic skirmish unfold onstage. However, they’ll actually be witnessing a dark comedy penned by Leslye Headland, who shares, “my greatest aim is that the audience and I laugh at the same painful joke together.”
The former assistant to Harvey Weinstein, Headland tapped into her own knowledge of cutthroat corporate politics when writing the Off-Broadway play. The script centers on a group of ambitious 20-somethings in a posh Manhattan office, all scrambling to meet the demands of their tyrannical yet unseen boss. The result: an acidic examination of the business world, characterized by sharp-tongued banter and danishes thrown at the audience every five seconds.<p>
