"Sex, Money, and the Corporate Ladder" takes aspects of the business world to inspire people to take their problems head-on.
Texas Tech’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents "Sex, Money, and the Corporate Ladder" by graduate student Rodney Donahue at 8 p.m. Feb. 8-13 and 2 p.m. Feb. 14.
"Sex, Money, and the Corporate Ladder" follows the lives of three individuals responsible for creating the Corporate Ladder, the most successful private company in the United States. When their personal desires come into direct conflict with one another, they are faced with an inevitable collision and the question of survival.
"The ideas present in this play were inspired by the idea of a limitless theatre," Donahue said.
"The theatre is limited only by its visionaries, and I was determined to not be among the limited. Everyone has problems and deals with them differently. The message is to deal with your problems. Don't avoid them; face them head-on."
It should also be noted that this play deals with very touchy subjects (sexual harassment, coping with disability) in a light-hearted manner.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students with a valid ID. The production will be at the Maegen Theatre west entrance, located at 18th Street between Boston and Flint. For more information call the Maegen Theatre box office at (806) 742-3603.
