25 JUL - 31 AUG 1996 — Comedy
Auckland Theatre Company
John, Hugh, Jim and Beryl are still at work at the Government Supply and Information Department. However, their comfortable world is turned upside down when the Department is privatised. Their new boss ominously informs the group that "some conditions hitherto enjoyed by employees will no longer be appropriate and some downsizing will be inevitable." What follows for our heroes is an hilarious and sometimes moving lesson on the realities of the corporate world of the 1990's. Technology, profit margins, and market forces threaten to destroy life-long friendships as the axe of redundancy swings closer and closer.
