Written and performed by Kristina DeGiovanni
Directed by Alexandra Scordato
Are we all faking it at our jobs? Or is that just the temp – a pretentious ingenue spilling the truth on her undercover acting role at a dysfunctional media company. Office Space meets Fleabag for the post-Great Resignation era, The Temp is a satirical, genre-bending soloplay lampooning white-collar work culture through a tale of lies, desperation, and egregious misconduct.
