Below The Belt

Apr 28 - May 13, 2000

Below the Belt is a play that addresses the quandary we face in trying to preserve ourselves in the face of the forces we have to bend to. It is a play that provides not only a window into an unnamed corporation but a window into corporations everywhere, and the relationships within them. It addresses men specifically, and the dynamics that exist between them. It is both humorous and profoundly sad, and it touches a place inside audience members that they may have long ceased being conscious of.
