Comedy-Farce/ 7 Characters, 4 Women, 3 Men/ Full Length, Two Acts
June Midcalf, a soon to be divorced businessperson, is transferred to Moosebreath, Maine. She is to start a new sales division for her company. June mysteriously discovers the real reason for her transferred is so Meredith, the owner of the company, and her soon to be ex sister-in-law, can fire her.
Why does Meredith want to fire her? What can June do?
Tired of being pushed around, June has a plan of her own to get even. She hires employees that are antithetical to the “corporate image” and her own ethical standards. Why should June care? She is not going to have to supervise these malcontents. She is going to be fired — or is she?
