This Is A Play About Buttons

Georgie works in an office, pressing buttons all day, every day, because buttons are happiness. Stan runs the office with an iron fist. The pursuit of knowledge pits itself against the pursuit of happiness when old acquaintances emerge from woodwork, and as the office begins to unravel, desperation takes hold. This is a Play About Buttons explores the ramifications of burnout in a world where work outranks all, and the consequences that spin out when conformity is the only option.
