A play-for-one performed by Microsoft Office, phone, and laser printer puts you in the role of a temp covering for an overworked actuary.
Let’s Get Ready to Work!
Sarah Jane Tully, a 53-year-old actuary, is taking her first vacation in years, and you’ve been hired to take her place. temping, the strange and comic tale of an employee’s inner life, is performed for an audience of one by a Windows PC, a corporate phone, a laser printer, and the Microsoft Office Suite. Filling in at Sarah Jane’s cubicle, you’ll update client records, send emails, and eavesdrop on intra-office romance as you discover the secrets of your new employer. Congratulations, you’re the new temp! Pack your lunch and get ready to work.
