OfficeBLOCK

Four white-collar workers. Four rungs of the corporate ladder. One objective.

OfficeBLOCK
follows four co-workers in their individual battle for power within the cogs of the corporate world. Trading in currencies of greed and self-promotion, they all make their plays at moving up the food chain...until being faced with the same question: how far would they go to get what they want?

The work was conceptualised as part of the ArtsBridge International Exchange and showcased its first draft at the Intimate Theatre in November 2011. It was since reworked for a National Tour in 2012 and will run at the Baxter Theatre in July.
