Three people are called to a meeting with their boss. One of them is going to be fired. In the course of an hour, we see the nasty, brutish side of workplace politics as two candidates gang up on the other. Where does the line between banter and bullying lie and how far would you go to be successful?
Three people, two jobs, now would be a really bad time to have a stain in your jacket…
This sharp, savage black comedy from Mike Bartlett (Doctor Foster, King Charles III, Press) is a visceral examination of office life in a climate of austerity.
“A gem of a new play… chillingly evokes the dynamics of bullying, in school, the work place, and elsewhere” WHATSONSTAGE.COM
“Sinewy, stinging, witty… it’s as if Bartlett has taken the nastiest needling from a Mamet or a Pinter play and put them into a space of pure verbal aggression” THE TIMES
“Short, slick and emotionally unflinching… delivers a decisive punch” THE STAGE
“A writer with a startling breadth of ambition coupled with an ear for dialogue unmatched by many of his contemporaries… Bull taps into something incredibly relevant and potent” EXEUNT MAGAZINE
