Assistance
A.R.T. Institute Season
March 15 - 17, 2018 at 7:30PM

Written by Leslye Headland
Directed by Scott Zigler
Featuring graduate acting students from the A.R.T. Institute Class of 2018

 

For these young assistants, life is an endless series of humiliations at the hands of their hellacious boss, a powerful uber-magnate. In rare moments of calm when the phone stops ringing, Nick, Nora, and their traumatized co-workers question whether all their work will lead to success—or just more work. Featuring the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training Class of 2018 and directed by Scott Zigler (Dying for It, Elemenopea) Leslye Headland’s Assistance is a biting, high-octane satire about our attraction to power and what we’re willing to sacrifice to stay in its orbit.
