Are we all faking it at our jobs? Or is that just The Temp, a pretentious ingenue ready to spill the truth on her undercover acting role at a dysfunctional NY media company. Fleabag meets Office Space for the post-Great Resignation era, The Temp lampoons white-collar work culture through a tale of lies, betrayal, and egregious misconduct, told by an unreliable narrator and her absurd impersonations of her desperate co-workers. A twisted new solo play by American comedian Kristina DeGiovanni, The Temp will keep you laughing so you don't cry.
