  • Short Description

When a CEO and his top executives are on a business trip to secure a major deal, a damaging sex scandal is unearthed back home, endangering his company, family, and legacy. A searing look at the limitless privilege and power of the one per cent.

Welcome to the world of the one per cent, the corporate elite, the C-suite, the kingmakers. A world managed by payoffs, press releases, NDAs, and company policies. What happens to morality in this world when its people have limitless power?

When a CEO and his highest executives are on an international business trip to secure a major deal, a sex scandal between employees is unearthed on the news. As the pressure to complete the deal mounts, more damaging secrets come to the surface, endangering the CEO’s company, family, and legacy.

In this searing look at upper-class privilege, Post-Democracy asks, what does it take to confront corruption?

  • The play is based on Hannah’s experiences of being around high-level corporate executives for years as a bartender—as the daughter of socialist and left-wing thinkers, she “felt like a spy.”
  • First produced in a digital-only production by Prairie Theatre Exchange in April 2021

“Subject matter that could feel forced in less-deft hands is rescued from an HR manual and brought to painful, vivid life.”
