Quotes & Highlights
“Encompasses idealism, compromise and illusion in an all too real world of mass manipulation.” New York Times
“Acidly funny.” New York Magazine
“A fast-paced, often uproarious comedy.” New York Daily News
The satiric play Tabletop is a frenzied comedy that takes place in the pressure-cooker environment of an advertising company specializing in high-end tabletop imagery. Egomaniacal artists, an autocratic director, demanding clients, second-guessing technicians and naive wannabes populate this insular enclave of fabulous fakery.
“For me, this is a play about pain, but people always seem to find it funny, which confuses me. If you ever had a bad boss, this show is cheap therapy,” says playwright Rob Ackerman, whose years working as a “tabletop” technician in advertising inspired him to write the play.
