About the Production
When a white male co-worker makes an off-the-cuff racially insensitive remark to his boss’s black female assistant, what seems like a harmless joke snowballs, suddenly catapulting the ad sales office of a women's magazine into turmoil. Threats are made, loyalties tested and contrasting beliefs about power, race and class surface, resulting in an explosion of shocking reveals, lies and accusations, ultimately leaving their department in utter shreds.

Set Designer Sandy Yaklin shares her thoughts on this production that addresses one of the most complex subjects of our society.


What attracted you to this production?

Sandy: I was very excited to work with the director, Amiee Todoroff and working with the complexity of the set changes.

What was the most challenging aspect for this production for you?

Sandy: The number of locations, limited storage and fairly realistic look.

What was it like working with this company?

Sandy: Aimee, Justin, Will, Molly and the rest of the production crew were just great people to work with.
