Telling the Truth Can Torpedo a PR Career: “The Fiery Sword of Justice” at Stageworks/Hudson [Berkshire on Stage]
A comedic cautionary tale about a high powered public relations executive whose compulsive truth-telling torpedoes her career, The Fiery Sword of Justice is written and performed by Lauren Letellier. Stageworks/Hudson in Hudson will present the play at 8pm on Friday (June 12) for one night only. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by phone at 518.822.9667 or online.
Funny, engaging and thought provoking, the play explores the harrowing — and hilarious — similarities between family and work-place dysfunction. Raised by a narcissistic mother with a star complex, Lauren developed childhood coping strategies that helped her survive — and even thrive — in corporate America. But when the price of success becomes too high, she discovers that the only way to determine her future is to examine her past. The Fiery Sword of Justice played to sold-out houses at the 2014 NY International Fringe Festival, where critics called it “bold, funny, wise and brave,” “wicked, sharp and funny” and “a story rich with heartache, humor, corruption and the longing for the truths in life.”
