John Van Druten's trenchant play about office politics comes to the Mint Theater Company.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
London Wall tells the story of Pat Milligan, a naïve young typist who falls for the charms of a predatory junior lawyer. Watching with concern is the firm's senior secretary, her too-timid suitor, and several others in the office. Presiding over all is Mr. Walker, gamely trying to navigate a new kind of office where men and women must work side by side. "Amid the drudgery of everyday tasks there are flashes of passion and aspiration...It's a gossipy, competitive environment, which is evoked in a wry, elegant and often very funny style that invites comparisons with Mad Men." (The Evening Standard)
