About

EvaBond Adhesive Supplies is in trouble. In its south-west office, Regional Manager Graham White has been found bludgeoned to death with his own name plaque. How could this have happened? Mr White was a stand-up guy, the embodiment of Evabond’s corporate ethos – motivating employees with targets, in-house videos, team building days and always encouraging them to think the unthinkable.
As employees are questioned by the police, two Sales and Distribution Coordinators , Jean and Jenny, emerge as the prime suspects. Under questioning, their protestations of job satisfaction and unwavering loyalty to Evabond come unstuck, along with their ambitions, principles and even the reality of the interrogation room itself…Inspired by Genet’s The Maids with influences from Harold Pinter and Martin Mcdonagh, this original black comedy uncovers the despair at the heart of the corporate hamster wheel and imagines how far people will go to escape it.
