Back to work! JOB, the critically acclaimed psychological thriller about the toll life on the internet takes on all of us, which played a sold-out, twice-extended Off Broadway run this fall, will return for an encore engagement next month. 

The provocative dark comedy by Max Wolf Friedlich starring Peter Friedman (Ragtime, “Succession,” Single White Female) and Sydney Lemmon (TÁR, “Succession,” “Helstrom”) and directed by Michael Herwitz (Where We’re Born) will play from January 19th, 2024 through March 3rd, 2o24 at the Connelly Theater. Opening night is scheduled for Thursday, January 25th. 

JOB had its world premiere at SoHo Playhouse this past fall. Following rave reviews, JOB sold out its initial run and extended for an additional three weeks, selling out within hours. 

Jane (Lemmon), an employee at the big tech company (you know the one), has been placed on leave after becoming the subject of a viral video. She arrives in the office of a crisis therapist – Loyd (Friedman) – determined to be reinstated to the job that gives her life meaning. JOB zooms in on two careerists of different generations, genders, and political paradigms to examine what it means to be a citizen of the internet and our obligation to help the people who need it most.

JOB features scenic design by Jeff Award nominee Scott Penner, costume design by Michelle Li , lighting design by Mextly Couzin, and sound design by Jessie Char and Maxwell Neely-Cohen. Hannah Getts serves as dramaturg. ShowTown Theatricals serves as general managers.
