Slow Jobs: Servicing America for $12 an Hour
It's not every day that a play gives the audience a collective pink slip, but this storytelling extravaganza by Laura Bidgood and Curt Lund does just that. From there, it's a trip down the rabbit hole of dead-end jobs, crushed dreams (even if that dream is working at Taco John's), and ruined office potlucks. Bidgood and Lund are both engaging storytellers, and their tales find the balance between the terrifyingly mundane and awe-inspiringly bizarre. It all comes together in Lund's epic tale of a revolt at a deli counter fueled by a copy of Norma Rae and a display case of ancient salads.
