“Why is it still like this?” Janice sighs to Eliza. It’s 1992, and Eliza is the brainy new recruit at a small-shop architecture firm. But she’s struggling to get a foothold on even the lowest rung of the company ladder, and starts making moves to blow the lid off their pandora’s box of office politics and social maneuvering, in this sharply hilarious black comedy.
WP Theater and Jenna Segal Productions proudly present the Off-Broadway premiere of What We’re Up Against, from award-winning playwright Theresa Rebeck (Mauritius, Seminar, NBC’s “Smash”), directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, (Dry Land, Empathitrax). Rebeck brings her trademark blistering wit to the workplace in this darkly funny and all-too-relevant comedy of gender politics.
