ABOUT THE PLAY:
A simple complaint about the hot water leads a mild-mannered clerk down a rabbit’s hole of intrigue and duplicity. Finding himself on “a list” and charged with unknown crimes, he is suddenly at odds with his boss, his wife and a corrupt government official. On the run, his life destroyed, he has nothing left to save but his soul. The play asks if even the most innocent among us is safe when every inch of our lives – and our hard drives – are examined. The play rings the alarm on a government/corporate partnership that assumes a right to monitor the thoughts of its citizens, and is certain to reassure paranoids of every political stripe.
