“Reduction in Force” opens in Louisville

Voted “Best Local Play” in the 2011 Broadway World San Francisco Theater Awards, Reduction in Force by Patricia Milton examines minute-by-minute ethical decisions made by employees of Icarus Financial Services during a massive layoff.

What happens when people are reduced to commodities, and fraud is the preferred way of doing business? A reduction in force puts career secretary Anita Green on the chopping block.  Will she keep her job or her self-respect?

“This is our first full-length play to be produced from our open submission program, and we really got lucky to be connected with such a wonderful playwright in Patricia Milton,” says Executive Artistic Director Doug Schutte.  “With over 300 full-length submissions from dozens of states (and countries), the fact that Patricia’s work stood out from the crowd speaks volumes about her acumen as a playwright.”

Performances July 25, 26, 27, 28, and August 1, 2, 3, 4.  Tickets $15, $12 for students and seniors.
