    What a fantastic play. Honest, funny and surprising. Would love to see this on stage. With or without dip.

    The corporate ladder leads straight to hell in this delightful tale of greed from Mr. Hansen. Funny, smart and fast.
  • Annnd Scene (of the Crime)

    Funny spoof of police interrogations. Busser’s dialogue is inventive and constantly surprising! Loved the changing of styles! Would be a great fit for a short play festival.
