Office workers plot revenge at Tring theatre
A sexist boss, no chance of proper promotion, and a minefield of innuendo is the daily life of office workers in 9 to 5 The Musical.
The film version, starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, was a box office smash hit in the early 80s, and the stage adaptation is proving to be just as much fun.
Tring Festival Company present the musical at The Court Theatre with a bright and breezy, yet thought provoking feast of great music, crazy plot lines and a feelgood factor second to none.
Set in the late 1970s the play focuses on the struggle to get through the day for office workers juggling with life work, family, love and romance, or the lack of it.
This is not easy when you are also in the employment of a boss like Mr Hart.
Sexual harassment is as commonplace as paper, and the path to career success is a minefield of innuendo and put downs trodden by any girl with aspirations beyond that of the typing pool.
Even there, employees are not safe, in a world where men lead and women follow, or so they might think.
This is a world where what the boss wants, he gets, and we’re not just talking about coffee.
And no matter how careful everyone is, there is always gossip.
This tale of office life also includes a touch of kidnap,blackmail and the questionable use of a telephone cord, with twists and turns in unexpected places.
With familiar tunes - more than you might realise - this fast moving, fun filled show will have audiences laughing and tapping their toes for an evening of feelgood fun.
On at 8pm from Wednesday May 18 through to Saturday May 21.
Tickets £12 to £15 with concessions available.
