What We're Up Against
A new play by award-winning playwright Theresa Rebeck starring Skylar Austin and Marg Helgenberger.
“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 run 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. Rebeck brings her trademark blistering wit to the workplace in this darkly funny and all too relevant comedy of gender politics.
