Written by Rebeck in 1992, What We're Up Against premiered nearly 20 years later at the Magic Theater in San Francisco. The play is described as follows: "'Why is it still like this?' Janice sighs to Eliza. It's 1992, and Eliza is the brainy new recruit at a small-shop architecture firm. But she's struggling to get a foothold on even the lowest rung of the company ladder, and starts making moves to blow the lid off their Pandora's box of office politics and social maneuvering, in this sharply hilarious black comedy."

The design team includes scenic design by Narelle Sissons, costume design by Tilly Grimes, lighting design by Grant Yeager, and sound design by M.L. Dogg.
