The Thugs

It’s sad to think that the best jobs in this age are reserved for nurses and pharmacists whose stock are the rest of society’s workers slowly being squeezed in metaphorical salt mines across the land. Luckily, the harsh life of the playwright hasn’t led to the profession’s extinction yet. Witnesses Adam Bock, scribe of the well-received play The Thugs, currently running at the Queen Mary’s Royal Theater. A dark comedy about the modern work place, Bock tells the tale of several temps employed at a high-rise building's ninth-floor law office who are spreading dark rumors about a death on the fourth floor. Come see the play that New York Times critic Jason Zinoman called “a delightfully paranoid little nightmare.” If it has any bearing on your own life, you can stand high aloft the Queen Mary’s promenade afterward and weigh your options.
