Tonight and Thursday, Pillbox Theatre at The Leeds Big Bookend

As part of The Leeds Big Bookend, Pillbox Theatre presents Conscientious:


For Two Nights Only, Pillbox Theatre Presents Conscientious, A Play by Adam Z. Robinson, at the Leeds Big Bookend Festival 2016!

Conscientious by Adam Z Robinson

Pillbox Theatre presents Adam Z Robinson’s play, Conscientious.
The only two dates in 2016!

Conscientious is a play about the humour, and the horror, of office politics taken to extremes and finding inspiration from First World War Conscientious Objectors.

Rebekah has just landed her first job. She’s everything they should want. Young. Keen. Conscientious.

But Michelle, her office ‘buddy,’ is also the office bully and Rebekah’s dream job is turning into a nightmare. Desperate, she turns for help to the ideals of her hero, her great-grandfather, a First World War conscientious objector.

When pushed right to the edge, what wins out? Ideals? Or survival?

Adam Z Robinson’s play, which toured nationally in 2014, finds the humour, and the horror, of office politics taken to extremes.
