About this show

When a company's next million dollar concept arrives via the suggestion box from a guy in the tool room, white collar forces and personal ambition test the morality of the engineer charged with making the idea work. A biting commentary on class conflict in the modern workforce. The Idea Man takes us into that great gaping gulf between labor and management. In leaps Al, a sharp but underachieving line worker, who drops a suggestion in "the box" on how to improve the machine he's tied to, which is so brilliant it could revolutionize the industry. His prize: a one hundred dollar check and a plaque. The corporate bosses see it as a win-win windfall. But Al's got other ideas. This biting commentary on class warfare by playwright Kevin King with award-winning director David Fofi at the helm will take you into the trenches, boardrooms, bedrooms, and barrooms of today's industrial world where exploitation is a given.
