HOME OFFICE - A Ten-Minute Play

An “entry-level” employee must be terminated in the New York City office of a major international corporation. He is not being terminated  for poor performance issues, or inappropriate behavior, or foul language. Those are issues those firing him are guilty of, but they are not the cause of his termination.  In fact, the reason the employee is being terminated has nothing to do with his performance. 

MR. BEN STONE: AGE: 50’S Senior Vice President, G.M. A pompous, angry executive. MS. JANE CASE: AGE: 40’S Human Resource Director A prim & proper executive. WILLIAM BENNETT: AGE: 20’S Associate Manager, Marketing A polite, nervous African American or Hispanic entry-level employee.
