A comedy by Matthew Cory

All Play and No Work is a modern American farce that takes place in an office. It is well-suited for community theatres whose audiences appreciate farces and comedy plays.


An ordinary day at the office turns to cutthroat chaos when the boss announces he'll be promoting one of his employees by the end of the day. That's all the incentive co-workers Jane, Victor, and Phil need to start competitive brown-nosing and undermining each other through lies and hijinks. Things only get more out-of-control when a foreign stranger, an IRS agent, and a homeless woman arrive and become unwitting participants in the mayhem. Will the most deserving cubicle dweller earn the coveted promotion, or will it go to someone who treats a day on the job as all play and no work?
