It’s a cull to save the species

In the struggle for survival in Mike Bartlett’s short play, directed by Adam Tomkins, no blow is too low.

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.

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.

First performed in the Scottish Community Drama Association’s One-Act Festival; revived for the Edinburgh Fringe.
