This is a provocative show - can't really say "liked" or "loved", but it it is thought provoking and often laugh-out-loud funny. An interesting aspect is the repeated costume changes of "Emma", the employee, in a series of meetings ovr a period of over a year; in contrast, the "Manager", who never leaves the stage, is always dressed in the same mannish business suit, adding to the sense of the character as an automaton.
