Play Synopsis:

Office life can be hard. At least Grace and Amy have each other to help get through the madness. When a job opening opens up for one of them, they start to compete with each other for the new office and a pay raise. Nothing short of murder could make these two work together again. When their boss chokes suspiciously on a cookie and dies, they must cover up the death and work together again. As more and more staff members start to notice the absence of their boss, the more ridiculous Grace and Amy’s life snowballs into catastrophe. Will they be caught in their misdeeds or will they pull off their bizarre cover up?

World Premiere.
