Three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can't do, even in a man's world. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical boss. Set in the late 1970s this hilarious story of friendship and revenge is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic.

Callbacks will be Tuesday, February 23rd from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. You do not need an appointment time, simply show up.
