On today’s episode, Grace Aki talks to playwright Max Wolf Friedlich about the Off-Broadway premiere of his new play “JOB.” In the play, Jane (played by Sydney Lemmon), an employee at a big tech company, has been placed on leave after becoming the subject of a viral video. She arrives in the office of a crisis therapist – Loyd (played by Peter Friedman) – determined to be reinstated to the job that gives her life meaning.
A psychological thriller, “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.
Max and Grace discuss the creation of the play, the incredible stars at its center, and how you actually pronounce the title.
