The Secretaries
Los Angeles Premiere

A killer comedy. The Secretaries chronicles the initiation of Patty Johnson as she lands the job of her dreams at the Cooney Lumber Mill in Big Bone, Oregon. But those dreams turn into bloody nightmares when she discovers the truth her co-workers have been hiding from her! Written 20 years ago, skewering feminist archetypes of the ‘80s and ‘90s, this play is as fresh as if it was written today.
