A NEW PLAY BY LESLYE HEADLAND
Quit Your Job.
(April 4, 2008) Los Angeles, CA — IAMA THEATRE COMPANY presents the world premiere of a brilliantly funny new play about a group of young, ambitious, and competitive executive assistants: ASSISTANCE. Playing at the Working Stage Theatre, 1516 N. Gardner Street, West Hollywood, CA 90048. Performing Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm. Assistance runs from April 18th, 2008 through May 24th.
!Assistance, the third installment of Leslye Headland’s Seven Deadly Plays series presented by the IAMA Theatre Company, examines how the sin of greed eventually corrupts an office full of youthful ambition. Several twenty-somethings take on the daunting job of assisting a successful but impossibly demanding boss. Unable to please him as their environment deteriorates, they resort to rivalry, jealousy, fear, and abuse. What started out as a promising career opportunity becomes a prison they can neither endure nor escape.
