About the Show

For these young assistants, life is an endless series of humiliations at the hands of their hellacious boss, a powerful uber-magnate. In rare moments of calm when the phone calls stop rolling, Nick and Nora and their traumatized co-workers question whether all their work will lead to success—or just more work. Leslye Headland’s ASSISTANCE is a biting, high-octane satire about our attraction to power and what we’re willing to sacrifice to stay in its orbit.

About The Playground

The Playground represents coming of age and self discovery. It's the transition we all make from the playground of our childhood to the playground of our adulthood. Enjoy raw, honest, and relevant stories that reflect what it means to be human.
