BURST - The Age of Marketing - Sarah Boyd

Salt Lake City, Utah

PLAY DESCRIPTION

As Tactix, an environmental tech company, sits on the verge of its next round of funding, founder and CEO Sarah Boyd must persevere through a late-night interview with a particularly tough reporter and the waffling of her CTO Jennifer Weaver. It's a heavy load, and Sarah knows that she is the only one great enough to bear it.

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Today                          

Situation: At the end of a grueling interview, Sarah Boyd, CEO of Tactix, reveals to her CFO and the reporter that it doesn't matter that Tactix can't do what it promises, because people don't care about the truth anymore. We just care about how things are packaged to us.

Subject Matter: Technology, Start-Up, Women in The Workplace, Gender Roles, Office, Environment, Truth, Marketing, Ego, Arrogance, Revelation

Note from Playwright: There are so many plays that take place in a work-place that focus entirely on men, I wanted to write an office play for female performers to sink their teeth into.
