The Full Treatment

By Jay Shearer

Directed by Doug Reed

Broom Street Theater is proud to announce "The Full Treatment" by Jay Shearer directed by Doug Reed, opening January 13th, 2017.

"The Full Treatment" is a wicked, dark, corporate comedy full of wordplay. The play concerns a trio of job-seekers at massive Peppercock Industries. Inside the massive front door is the luxurious domain of the CEO, Lonnie Peppercock. What's the door separating you from the 1%? What's it like inside that door? What do you have to give up to get inside? To stay inside?

Doug Reed is a longtime Broom Street Theater stalwart, author of "Sweet William", "The Nails", and "The Lamentable Tragedie Of Scott Walker". Jay Shearer teaches writing and literature at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and is the author of the novel "Five Hundred Sirens", as well as a novelette and many short stories and essays. "The Full Treatment" is his first full-length play.
