I Gave at the Office

Her business life in turmoil, Sonia Starguardia receives an invitation to her 20 year high school reunion. She tries to ignore the fact her secretary's been fired, her promotion is in name only, her budget is inadequate and she's required to integrate the conflicting feedback of the partners on the firm brochure. The anxiety sends her into a fugue state where her office equipment takes on the personalities of those with whom she works. Sonia's interactions with her office equipment force her to confront her own resistance and fear of confronting her past. After killing her phone, a delivery girl delivers her back to reality. Giddy yet determined, Sonia begins making changes in her life, her job and her way of working.

Oxymoronic Fusion

Other characters have their own agenda and need Clepotha to alter the patterns of their existence which include:
