“How A Cup Of Coffee Got Me Fired”

No, not me mind you, as someone who doesn’t drink coffee, I possibly could get fired if I was required to make a cup for a VIP. The title of this post refers to the name of an upcoming solo show by my friend Laura Salvas, who also happens to be a very talent comedian (her 2012 Fringe show was considered one of the best of the festival).

She describes her latest project like this, “For anyone who has ever sat in a cubicle thinking, ‘I’m meant for better things.’ For anyone who has ever had their lunch eaten out of the work fridge. For anyone who has ever written a passive-aggressive Post-it note. For anyone who can only comprehend these words because they’ve had their morning coffee.

How a Cup of Coffee Got Me Fired follows a data entry clerk’s quest for revenge when someone at work starts drinking her coffee. Inspired by real events, this original solo play takes a comedic look at the bleakness of office life, the characters we share cubicles with and how scary people can get without caffeine.”

While I can’t related to the coffee aspect of the production, the rest, well, who of us hasn’t been there before?

It runs for three nights only, April 23-26, at Fraser Studio (near Queen W and Strachan). Tickets are only $10 and can be bought in advance or at the door. Ā I’m planning on checking out one of the nights and if you like to laugh, you’ll want to schedule this show into your schedule too.
