TEMPORARY Comes to The Butterfly Club
Amy's life as a receptionist is a rut of emails, ergonomics and endless unrealistic expectations. She smiles politely, makes the perfect cup of coffee and has a delightful phone manner. She spends her days tackling the big issues - like the optimal temperature of the air conditioning and how to ensure the coffee machine is being appropriately cleaned. Now on a journey to find another gluten-dairy-nut free cake for the big merger deal, Amy stops to wonder: is this her moment to escape to freedom or the beginning of her descent into corporate oblivion?
Created on the clock behind a real reception desk, Temporary finds endless humour in the mundane 9 - 5. Because if the receptionist doesn't do it, who will?
After a successful four star season at Adelaide Fringe delighting critics and audiences alike, Temporary is coming to The Butterfly Club for Melbourne Fringe. With a 5.30pm time slot, it is the perfect place to have a work social or finish off a hard day at the office.
