Kate is a perpetual temp. This week, Kate is a receptionist at Morerand Cybernautics Hardware and Software. While fielding calls from impatient octogenarians and managing her co-workers' neuroses, she daydreams about violence in the office and a world in which she is the master of her own destiny. This catastrophic comedy, written by Anne Washburn, unearths the deeper indignities of the workplace, and the dark desires that arise when we grapple with                            our own self worth.
