Mirror Stage will present a reading of Theresa Rebeck's What We're Up Against as part of its "Feed Your Mind" series, to be directed by Suzanne M. Cohen at the Ethnic Cultural Theatre (3940 Brooklyn Ave NE in Seattle) on Saturday, February 25 at 8pm and Sunday, February 26 at 2pm.

Set in a highly competitive architecture firm, this bold, laugh-out-loud script presents a funny yet insightful view of what it means to be female in a male-dominated career, and one woman's response when she tires of slamming into the glass ceiling. What We're Up Against keenly focuses on dysfunction in the workplace around gender issues.

A moderated discussion follows every performance. The play contains strong language, and is not recommended for ages younger than 17.

The cast will include Heather Hawkins (Janice), Mona Leach (Eliza), Galen Joseph Osier (Ben), Michael Patten (Stu), and Jeremy Young (Weber).

Rebeck is a widely produced playwright throughout the United States and abroad, whose four premieres in the past 12 months include What We're Up Against, Poor Behavior, Seminar, and Dead Accounts. Her other plays include Mauritius, Loose Knit, The Family of Mann, Spike Heels, Bad Dates, The Butterfly Collection, Our House, View of the Dome, Omnium Gatherum and The Understudy. She is a writer and Executive Producer on the new NBC series, Smash.
