OvRecLogoBonWhoriz “Essential Theatre”–  Anthony Byrnes, KCRW

[cbtabs][cbtab title=”Synopsis”]As the most recent hire at Tender Form Weight Loss Systems, wheelchair-bound Tracy will stop at nothing to avoid being laid off by high-handed boss Roger. Perhaps it’s her disability that makes her so keenly aware that noone gets ahead by being “one of the nice ones.” Soon, hapless co-worker Neal and weight loss client Colleen find themselves caught in the lethal crossfire of a workplace battle zone.
