99 Layoffs is a new play by Seattle-based playwright Vincent Delaney. The world premiere of 99 Layoffs is a co-production with ACT Theatre’s Central Heating Lab, presented in ACT’s Eulalie Scanduzzi Performance Space (the “Lalie”).
Commissioned and produced by Radial Theater Project, 99 Layoffs follows the misadventures of Orson and Louella, two wannabe artists and serial job seekers, as they navigate the wicked waters of our recession-battered labor market. We follow our protagonists on a winding journey through interviews, daily work, layoffs and other terminations. Along the way, we meet the steady stream of manic bosses, petulant customers and evil children who challenge their peace of mind and economic stability.
A dramatic comedy (or comedic drama) for two actors and multiple characters, 99 Layoffs brims with recognition of a restructured world where the best job, and the only job that’s available, are pretty much the same job.
The production features accomplished local theater artists Aimée Bruneau as Louella and K. Brian Neel as Orson.
