AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What would a Machiavellian do if he found himself the employee of a medium-scale manufacturer of gym equipment? He would use his charm, wit and general ingenuity to manipulate those around him to further his career, of course. Enter Jake. He is the Operator, ready to exploit everyone on his way to the top, from the kindly and competent Melissa to the smug CEO Douglas. In this chillingly funny play David Williamson turns his scathing wit on the darker side of corporate behaviour'. (Publisher's blurb, back cover)
