One of three office workers is about to lose their job. As Tony, Isobel and Thomas wait for their boss to deliver the verdict, the three discuss each other's chances of survival. For alpha male Tony and calculating Isobel, it's clear that Thomas is getting the chop.
In the struggle for survival, no blow is too low.
A razor-sharp play about the fine line between office politics and playground bullying which exposes the vicious side of human nature and the power of words.
