WASHED UP by Lynn Rosen directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch at SPACE this weekend!


Order is the name of the game in this D.C. proofreading office but things are all off today. It’s ninety degrees in October, an error has been made on the iPod account, and when the boss figures out who’s responsible someone will be fired. As three proofreaders ponder their futures they become haunted and inspired by memories of a coworker who mysteriously disappeared. Who is the next to go? Or are they already gone?
