SATIRE. Unique, fresh, relevant…this play will amuse audiences with its wicked wit! As part of a routine employment background check, Jeremy shows up at the MINDCON laboratory, where he inadvertently ends up as a subject in a mysterious behavioral experiment. While waiting to be experimented upon, Jeremy meets Irene, a test subject who has been accidentally transformed from a frowsy chain-smoking ballerina into a “hyphenated person.” But before the scientists can “recondition” Irene, Jeremy sets out to free her, and in doing so, discovers that MINDCON functions more like a mad circus than a research facility. Not only do its scientists conduct inhuman experiments, but the chief financial officer “cooks” the books, the do-nothing CEO spends his days on the golf course, and everyone else just looks the other way and mindlessly follows orders. This clever play pokes fun at the dark side of corporate America, politics, and the media.
