The Story

(All of our show content will eventually be migrated to a new home at nervetheatre.org!) 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 calls stop rolling, Nick and Nora and their traumatized co-workers question whether all their work will lead to success—or just more work. 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.
