Strange things are happening to workaholic Jerry Daniels. Office desks are chasing him.


Strange things are happening to workaholic Jerry Daniels. Office desks are chasing him. Self-help tapes are talking to him. Umbrellas are raining from the sky. But the world of advertising is no place for weakness, especially when a big promotion is up for grabs! Though without a product for his advertising campaign and with a therapist who has more problems than he does, Jerry is in trouble.

Puppets wreak havoc and the stage comes to life in this award-winning comedy and theatrical feast. When you lock your life in a briefcase, don’t be surprised when it wants out.
