What We’re Up Against

About This Show

“They told me it wasn’t like this anymore. Why is it still like this?” bemoans Eliza, a female architect, as she slams into the firm’s glass ceiling yet again in this brilliant black comedy. Theresa Rebeck returns to the Alley after the hugely successful Mauritius, Bad Dates, and The Scene with her latest comedy, which probes “how sexism remains well entrenched in the work-place, not least when pitting women against each other in a boys’ club atmosphere” (Variety). Scott Schwartz (the Alley’s Mauritius, Othello, Much Ado About Nothing) returns to direct this new play by Theresa Rebeck.

Please note: This production contains explicit language and is recommended for mature audiences.
